L’Chaim! Bwog Celebrates the High Holidays and Good Food

In celebration of the beginning of High Holidays, Bwog offers a roundup of the city’s finest nosh purveyors.  Spice up your Rosh Hashanah spread with some alternatives to Zabars.



Russ and Daughters


If Westside’s lox doesn’t do it for you, then head to the Lower East Side for delicious smoked salmon in addition to a wide selection of other fish, including stable, sturgeon and other standbys. The prices are high, so order carefully. This is also a great place to stock up on more affordable treats like tsimmis, kugel and herring.





Barney’s Greengrass


Barney’s claims it’s the city’s sturgeon king, but Bwog disagrees; your best bet is a Corned beef and sliced onion triple-decker. Prices tend to be high — $12 for a sandwich — but you’re getting a lot of meat.



Kossar’s Bialys

Filled with cooling racks, industrial size mixers, and floury haze, Kossars is also the oldest bialy bakery in the country.  Unquestionably the best spot in the city for fresh, hot bialys. Not surprisingly they also make great bagels too.



Liebman’s Deli


Liebman’s deli stands out as one of oldest city’s strictly kosher, mashigiach (a kosher food inspector/local rabbi representative hybrid) supervised delis.  The pastrami and hot-dogs here are good, but probably not worth the trek to Riverdale. Come Rosh Hashanah, however, this is the place to go for Kasha Varnishkes, a savory and slightly sweet onion and pasta casserole.



Artie’s Deli


Though lacking in old-New York charm, Arties’s Deli acts as an acceptable alternative when you’re need a bowl of mushroom barley or matzoh ball soup. Ignore the gimmicky diner décor and in a pinch it will do.



Hungarian Kosher Cuisine


The simultaneously pasta-like and pudding-like consistency of kugel may be an acquired taste, but if you’re in need of this sweet side dish at your Rosh Hashanah table, your best bet is Hungarian Kosher Cuisine in Borough Park section of Brooklyn. It’s a long way to travel, but if kugel’s your thing, it’s worth it.



Moishes Kosher Bakery


Usually it’s hard to decide between their all the Bobka, hammentashen and rugelach, but for Rosh Hashanah opt for their seasonal special honey cake. (And the challah isn’t too bad either.) Best of all their prices are far cheaper than Zabars, Blue Ribbon and other bakeries.

    @!!! glad i can get my stable fix from Russ and Daughters…clearly bwog needs to hire some jewish editors

    @Reuben What about Fine and Shapiro? That’s on the Upper West Side, close (ish) to CU. And it’s Barney Greengrass, The Sturgeon King, not Barney’s Greengrass.
    But yes, I do love some nice Stable. I also love gefilte fish, but only when they’re freshly caught.

      @jew how do you freshly catch molded, gelled and preserved fish?

      1. Reuben says:

        @Reuben OH! You don’t know? Well, you’ve apparently never had the pleasure of going out on the lake as I did with my Dad as a young jew, fishing pole in hand, and catching a big ol’ Gefilte fish- in season when they swim upstream….they’re real fighters though, I tell ya’- takes two to reel ’em in.

      2. Well... says:

        @Well... Alma Mater isn’t the only thing on the Hudson Shore.
