Blintzes in Manhattan?

One of my French students is returning to Paris in a week or so. She loves bagels and pancakes and what she calls characteristic food. I recommended the blintzes at Sarabeth's - but I just checked the online and I don't think they serve blintzes any more. ??? And if so, where should I send her?

  1. I'm looking forward to reading the answers to this. I haven't had any great blintzes in Manhattan yet, but I have two places I would NOT recommend: Ukrainian National Home and Odessa. I had a fruit blintz at each place, and they both use frozen fruit, making for a kind of mushy blintz that tastes unpleasantly of freezer!

      Barney Greengrass (Amsterdam @ 86th) serves them. Haven't been there in a while, but the blintzes were delicious.

        Barney Greengrass or B&H

      2. Sarge's, but they only have potato and cheese... no fruit

        1. B&H Dairy

          127 Second Ave. between 7th and 8th St.
          I haven't eaten blintzes there myself, but I checked the menu and they have them, cheese and fruit varieties.

            You can get what I think are very good blintzes at Russ & Daughters, though obviously that's to go.

              Try B & H. Have had them all over, and B & H's measure up well.

              1. re: paperpest

                Ditto on B&H Dairy. They are freshly made, not premade and heated up. Cheese and fruit.
                Sarge's also has very good blintzes.

              2. Sarabeth's on 90th and Madison has them on its menu.

                  Thanks, Nancy. I only checked the West Side menu.

                2. Veselka's are great.

                    I had a delicious cheese blintz at Veselka. In fact, when I am in town next week, I am going back.

                      I didn't like their blintzes; from what I recall, they tasted mostly (or at least too much) of butter. I concur with others' recommendation of the blintzes at B&H. I haven't tried blintzes at either Barney Greengrass or from Russ & Daughters, though.

                        Across the street from B&H: Stage, 128 Second Avenue, between 7th St. & St. Mark's Place;
                        Polish-style blintzes (crepe rolled rather than folded).

                          I'm not sure I've tried blintzes at Stage. I almost always get soup or/and pierogies there.

                    2. I like the blintzes at Cafe Edison in the Theater District. Also, Veselka has good ones.
