    It's been a while since i had one but Veselka's was always really good. Nice touch with the chopped egg and I think cukes in there.

        I second Barney Greengrass - and recommend that you try the schav as well. It is the best commercially prepared version that I have ever had.

          I love the version at yonah's :
          On houston, everyone has a different opinion about the knish (i love the mushroom one most
          )Also in e village veselka does a good one, they serve w sour cream fyi
          (Both are vegetarian and made in house)

              Barney Greenglass can't be beat, Murray's Sturgeon King comes close
