Had 1st time NYC visitors from Colorado & California that didn't know what a Knish was. World Renowned, Yonnah Shimmel Knishes on E Houston St on the Lower East Side was a 107 yr old Historical Treat! I've been going there for 55yrs.
We had the traditional round Potato & Cherry Cheese Knishes, & Dr Brown Sodas. They are Baked (never fried) in the Basement & sent upstairs via the original Dumb Waiter. Lots of Old photos cover the walls.
Inexpensive: Knishes- $3.75@ & cans of Dr Brown $1.75. Take a few home-they freeze very well. They also have, Spinach, Broccoli, Kasha, Blueberry & Cheese Knishes.
Yonnah' is Very Very Casual.
Next stop, Katz's Deli for piled High Corned Beef & Pastrami sandwiches.
