Shelsky's of Brooklyn
When native New Yorker Peter Shelsky opened his Brooklyn bagel shop in 2011, it became an instant classic. Now, a decade later, its loyal neighborhood following will come out in droves for the shop’s golden fried latkes. Shelsky’s offers traditional and gluten-free potato latkes, as well as a sweet potato and celery root variety—because, you know, in this town, we’re all about having options. Order the crispy pancakes by the dozen, and don’t forget to tack on a tub of horseradish creme fraiche or Grandma Yetta’s chunky applesauce.
