Theo Peck knows his way around a matzo ball—the Food Experiments cook-off king is also the great-grandson of Jacob Harmatz, founder of Delancey Street kosher dairy Ratner’s (which shuttered in 2004 after 99 years in operation). Peck pays homage to the family business with this 850-square-foot takeout shop and deli—set to debut by January 15th—bringing back Ashkenazi-style dishes inspired by Ratner’s menu, but also veering out of its kosher confines with pork sausage and pâtés. Jewish staples like house-made gravlax and hamantaschen cookies are offered, along with updated dishes like chicken-liver terrine and carrots in salsa verde—buttermilk dressing. 455A Myrtle Ave between Washington and Waverly Aves, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn (347-689-4969)
