Best Blintzes (2008)
Robert Sietsema: Sure, you can get great East Village blintzes at, say, Veselka, but why not do even better? The citys ber-blintzes are made fresh daily at Pierogi, a Polish deli on First Avenue (our favorites: cheese, blueberry, apple). The catch is that you have to take them home and cook them yourself, but its well worth it.
Sarah DiGregorio: The homemade blintzes at Barney Greengrass are neatly wrapped around a generous dollop of sweetish farmers cheese and then sizzled in plenty of butter until golden. Take a forkful and admire the delicate, eggy folds, shiny with browned butter.
