A Knish Crisis: What’s a Guy to Do? Give ‘Em Away!

Earlier this month, we featured Knishery NYC, a new venture reinterpreting a Lower East Side classic.  Noah Wildman, a Lower East Side resident, planned to debut his bite-sized knishes at this weekend’s Hester Street Fair. When word came late this afternoon that the expected snow happening had forced the cancellation of tomorrow’s fair, Noah feared he’d be stuck with 500 knishes. But his despair did not last long!  Here’s the note he posted on his web site.

I was happy to have the last of about 165 potato knishes in the oven when this email comes through the wire:

“Dear HSF Vendors: We regretfully announce that because of the worsening weather conditions we will have to cancel tomorrow’s fair.  Given that it was to be our last day of the season we really wanted to keep the fair open but because of the combination of wind, rain, snow, we felt it could not be helped. Apologies for any inconveniences.So what’s a guy with 500+ knishes supposed to do? Does he throw down his dough? Cry into his seltzer? NO: The show must go on…in his own L.E.S. backyard!”

Please join Knishery NYC for an early afternoon FREE tasting. Menu to include:

  • Potato, Broccoli Cheddar, Spinach and Pumpkin for the savory team
  • Apple Cheese and Chocolate Hazelnut for the sweet team

Come one, come all. Take a doggy bag for a loved one! Sunday, October 30th from 12 to 3pm.

Thanks and hope to see, and feed, you on Sunday.

The knish-fest will take place in the park behind the Hillman Cooperative, 500 Grand Street. The entrance is on Grand, between Willett and Columbia streets.
