Does anyone know where to get a good Matzah ball soup in the Park Slope area? Alternatively, places in Williamsburg or Crown Heights. Any ideas?
SOMETIMES the matzoh ball soup at JUNIOR's (Flatbush & DeKalb) is spot on and they serve it up with their nifty onion rolls and pickled stuff when you arrive.
If GOTTLIEB's in Williamsburg is still around, you can try there...can't vouch for it.

Knocked off a shmaltzy, well-executed matzoh ball last night from the new Second Avenue Deli branch on East 75th Street and First Avenue...alas, it's from the "Inner Borough".
Fairway makes a very decent matzoh ball soup. Zap it at home.

Shelsky's makes matzoh ball soup. It's take-out only. I haven't tried it yet, but considering how high quality everything else I've had from there was, I would guess that it's worth a try. They're very exacting!

Maybe too far out of your area but the Matzoh Ball soup at Gold Coast in Bay Ridge is great..a nice rich broth instead of the usual pale soup, and lots of dill. It's not a real traditional deli...more like a deli-meets-noveau diner vibe...but they do the classics and it's my favorite place in Bay Ridge :)
