Pastrami on Rye with House-made Pickles and Deli Mustard – $5.50
With well-seasoned pastrami and a lovely mustard, this was one of the best sandwiches at the Festival. It came with a great pickle as well. This is highly recommended.
Smoked Salmon Potato Latkes – $5.75
The Salmon Latkes are a great deal for the price, considering how much salmon is provided. This latke also has plenty of capers, which surprised us due to it being a higher-price ingredient. The dill sour cream on top adds a nice flavor with the potato and salmon mixed in. Creamy, salty, and with a slight herby kick from the dill, this is a great latke and a great option from the festival overall.
Our only complaint about the latkes is that we wish they were a little crispier, but it’s still really good.
Potato Latkes – $4.25
A salmon-less version for vegetarians, these latkes are delicious, even though they seem to be made out of mashed potatoes, rather than the traditional shredded potatoes.
This is the same dill sour cream that was used in the salmon latke. If you’re not a fan of dill flavoring, we recommend you pass on these.
Sufganiyot: Mini Jelly-filled Donuts – $3.75
We loved these donuts! They are small but fresh and a little bit dense. The jelly is sweet with a touch of tartness but not overly sweet, which is nice.
The glaze on the donuts is also pretty sweet, but it helps balance out the tart jelly filling.
Black and White Cookie – $3.00
This is a traditional black and white cookie. The cookie itself tastes like a shortbread and gingerbread cookie mixed together.
The white chocolate side is super sweet. It’s dense and falls apart really easily.
Overall, it’s a modest improvement on the cookies served here in the past.
*NEW* Brooklyn Brewery Winter IPA, Brooklyn, NY (7.0% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.
From Brooklyn Brewery: “This classic IPA layers Simcoe and Trident hops for notes of dark fruit, blood orange, and bright, frosty juniper and pine aromas. A touch of rye spice notes warm the finish to keep you cozy to the core.”
*NEW* Frozen New York Whiskey Sour featuring Manifest Whiskey ($53/bottle) and Manischewitz Blackberry Wine ($7/bottle) – $11.50
This is light on alcohol, and very forward on the sour flavors.
The Manischewitz is poured on top, almost like a floater. It’s refreshing and great for the hotter weather. It’s not too strong or powerful, with a little bit of fruit punch flavor.
All in all, this is a great drink. We’d get it again… maybe one for each night of Hanukkah!
