No visit to New York City is complete without stopping at Yonah Schimmel’s Knish Bakery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, where they have been selling knishes since 1890. And they even have vegan ones! At one time, knisheries could be found all over the city, from Coney Island in Brooklyn to Forest Hills in Queens. Even though they never made it as big as bagels, knishes are quintessential New York food. Try these New York Style Knishes by NYC Vegan: Iconic Recipes for a Taste of the Big Apple with a schmear of brown mustard for the truly authentic New York City knish experience. And FYI, the “k” in “knish” is not silent.
