Potato pancakes in Albany/Schenectady area

My 92 year old aunt wants to go out to lunch for potato pancakes. I have no idea where in the area to find good ones. Can anyone suggest a place?

  1. I have the answer: Gershon's Deli on upper Union Street in Schenectady.

    It is a classic Jewish deli. When I crave a brisket and chopped liver on rye, they satisfy. Great pickles -- tomato and cucumber.

    here's their menu (potato pancakes are listed as a side at the bottom):

    1600 Union St, Schenectady, NY 12309

      Never even thought of Gershon's though we've been there many times. Thanks!

    2. The new Wolff's Biergarten has them.

      If your 92 year old aunt is a fan of soccer and European beer!

      1. Muza in Troy also has potato pancakes, and got an excellent review from Celina Ottoway:

        It seems like a good place to take an aunt.
