Shelsky's carries the Jewish appetizing staples as well as some creative updates like kung pao salmon which is cured like gravlax but with Sichuan peppercorns and chili bean paste. Take a look inside their fish operation.
For a change-up from Mile End's smoked meat, consider this salami and mustard sandwich on a kaiser roll.
In a video with the Jewish Daily Forward, third generation owner Gary Greengrass describes the holiday rush at this century-old Upper West Side institution. Hundreds of orders come from all across the country, and the store is at its busiest between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
When a new restaurant serving self-described "authentically inauthentic Jewish and Japanese food" opens in South Williamsburg, it sounds like a punchline. But throughout my leisurely dinner in the low-key space, I was consistently, pleasantly surprised by the friendly service and creativity at play in the kitchen.

With Rosh Hashanah ahead, the Gefilteria has been busy making kosher gefilte fish. Revile the gray, bleak-looking fish patties you may but this Brooklyn-based company uses ground whitefish, pike, and salmon instead of the more traditional, and much less sustainable, carp.
We visited Balaboosta's Einat Admony to learn how to make gondi, a Persian chicken and chickpea dumpling, which she'll be serving at a special Passover Seder. The dish is an unforgettably delicious and totally comforting alternative to Ashkenazi matzo ball soup.
Occupying a Midwood storefront a short block from the F train station on Avenue P, Chiffon's represents almost a century of Jewish baking tradition.
We've seen just about every iteration of comfort food go upscale—burgers with foie gras, macaroni and cheese with white truffles, barbecue served with (gasp) white napkins. But Jewish comfort food, that of latkes, gefilte fish, and Friday night roast chicken, is a whole new territory. Kutsher's in Tribeca is stepping up to put a modern spin on bubbe-influenced cuisine.
