Best Jew Food - To Go!
Okay, so it looks a bit skanky but trust me -- G&M on (41 Essex Street/254-5370) is the best place to get wonderful stuffed cabbage, noodle kugel, stuffed derma and carrot tzimmes. There's no place to sit in there so you'll have to trek it home. Just like Bubby made!

well, there's that new place "Blintz" on like third ave and 12th...I haven't gone but have heard varying reports.
Ratner's are still pretty good, I bet.
I'm going nuts...have had SUPERB blintzes lately, but can't for the life of me remember where. It's all a big blur of takeout menus and Tums for the Tummy.
Wait, I remember one place. Glatt Kosher Israeli snack place (great for breakfast), Asimov wrote about the Manhattan one (which is pretty darned good) but the Brooklyn branch on Coney Island Avenue (just north of king's highway) is funkier, and both have really good blintzes. Bissaleh Classic (1435 Second Avenue (212) 717-2333)

I went to Ratner's for lunch today -- I'd been meaning
to go ever since I read a column in NYPress or
somewhere about what a great place it was. It didn't
seem so good to me; the borscht was just average, and
the blintzes were not nearly as good as you can get a
few blocks north at Yonah Shimmel's. And _way_
overpriced, at $9.00 for 3 blintzes with no
accompaniment. I mean I was assuming for $9.00 I was
going to get some kind of salad or something on the

Little Poland, across from the Village East Theater on
2nd Ave at 12th Street, has pretty darn good blintzes-
and good pierogis and soups, too. I haven't been to
Kiev in a long time, but they always were a good bet
for that type of food too. And so is Christines-or is
it Theresas, I never remember which-on Montague Street
in Bklyn Hts.
