@NYMag Take me to the best #Knish Story in #NY Tuesday! Moving Yonah Shimmel’s Knish Bakery. Yonah Schimmel’s is one of the few distinctly Jewish business and #restaurants that remain as a fixture of this largely departed #culture and #cuisine As cited in The Underground Gourmet, a review of Yonah Schimmel’s in a collection of restaurant reviews by Milton Glaser and Jerome Snyder, “No New York politician in the las 50 years has been elected to office without having at least one photograph showing him on the #LowerEastSide with a knish in his face.” About 1890, Yonah Schimmel, a #Romanian immigrant, used a pushcart to start his knish #bakery As business grew, a small #store on #HoustonSt was rented by Yonah and his cousin Joseph Berger. It is as much a #landmark as an #eatery and has frequently been an artist’s subject. A portrait of the #YonahShimmel #KnishBakery by Hedy Pagremanski is in the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of #NewYork and featured in 2009 Woody Allen #film Whatever Works. The #knishes can also be purchased through their website and shipped overnight to anywhere in the #UnitedStates #movingmedia #knishery #NYCEats #StyleShow #filming important neighborhood business #EastVillage #history #LES #MadeinNY #NYC #2001films (at East Village)
