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?

    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.

      The new Wolff's Biergarten has them.

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

        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):

        Gershon's Deli & Caterers
        1600 Union St, Schenectady, NY 12309

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