Where can I get some good potato latkes?

I haven't been to any Hanukkah parties, can anyone recommend a good restaurant where I can get some good potato pancakes....preferably crispy, not leaden.

      are they good, have you had them?

        I have had them but by no means am I an expert on potatoe latkes. I didn't think they were to bad but it's also not my favorite dish either. Sorry I wasn't much help.

    2. I like cross roads in st louis park. It's hard to find good latkes. It's funny but sometimes I like to eat the German potato pancakes at Perkins in edina and that reminds me of latkes.

        that's funny sweetkim that you mention Perkins since one of the best places I've had latkes is at IHOP years ago in Seattle...they no longer have them on the menu.

        I'm allergic to sulfites that are often used on dehydrated potatoes so am looking for a place, probably not a chain restaurant, that would be making them from scratch.

          well, a friend and I went to Fishman's Kosher Deli tonight and had some quite good latkes, they make them from scratch, serve them with applesauce. And I, the low salt queen, actually added a little bit of salt! they were thin and crispy enough, two to an order, could have used 3, so my friend and I split a second plate of them! also had some of their good creamy coleslaw and a piece of noodle kugel with raisins and apples...................don't know how they do all that without any dairy products but they do............

            I love Fishman's. They are actually the most vegetarian friendly sit-down place in the area. The latkes are good. So are the felafel.

          lots of rants about horrible service at Mort's online....anyone care to differ on this?

            I've heard Mort's isn't that good.
