I am looking for excellent quality chicken matzo ball soup. I generally go to greenblatts, but am interested in other options.

    I think Langer's, Brent's and Nate 'n Al's all have excellent MBS with or without Chicken...That said I admit I've never had it at Barney Greengrass in Beverly Hills, so that might be worth taste testing as well.

      +1 for Brent's and their volleyball sized matzo balls.

        Barney Greengrass makes an excellent MBS.

          I also like Barney Greengrass, they are a little expensive, but you can't beat the view :o)

            A less known deli but still pretty good all around, especially for the MBS.

            Clementine also makes a delicious MBS, but it seems to only be available around the Jewish Holidays.
