Knish Nosh

Since 1952, this Forest Hills institution has been feeding Jewish soul food to locals and pilgrims alike, though a spruced-up revamp from owner Haig Schneiderman debuted in 2003. Despite the update, the restaurant’s old-world knishes remain venerable. Weighing in at more than a half pound each, these gut-busting potato cakes are hand-rolled daily in nine different flavors. For the purist option, a flaky baked bun is stuffed with a fluffy mound of mashed spuds. We recommend slicing the hefty snack in half and squirting spicy mustard down the middle for a sinus-clearing kick.
