Blintzes in Manhattan?

m

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?

    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.

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

          B&H Dairy
          http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/...
          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.

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

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

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

                    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.

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