Venue Info

This hole-in-the-wall Jewish bakery has been serving authentic, quality knishes on the Lower East Side since 1910. Once a downtown pushcart, the spot is unwavering when it comes to age-old un-adulterated recipes. The doughy dumplings are served hot, stuffed with stone-ground mustard, potato, and onion, while various meat, cheese, and veggie add-ons can be tucked inside, as well. Something of a New York landmark, the walls at Yonah's are lined with photographs of celebrities and New York politicians enjoying the iconic knishes by the store front (apparently The Beastie Boys were big fans), and the counter-service joint has made a handful of cameos in Woody Allen's filmography. And while the unpretentious eatery has already outlived many a downtown restaurant, the streams of city folk, hungry for classic gnosh and egg creams, show no signs of slowing down.
