The Eater Latke Finder: Where To Eat Latkes In Dec.

View as Map

Hanukkah starts tomorrow night, and restaurants in town are breaking out the essential holiday snack left and right: latkes. Sort of like a hash brown, but Jewish, these potato pancakes are traditionally served with sour cream and applesauce, but some places are taking some major liberties with the classic. Sacriledge? Maybe. The Eater Latke Finder ensures your path will cross with a delicious latke of one ilk or another in the coming days.
