The Lower East Side has laid claim to the famous Katz’s Delicatessen for over a century, but head west to Tribeca for a modern twist on Jewish American classics—think potato latkes topped with caviar. While dishes this, well, unorthodox may offend true purists (who will be happy for the no-nonsense brined pickles served with the charcuterie!), the restaurant’s done well with the critics and has amassed quite a following since opening fall 2011. Whatever your take on the newfangled dishes, however, you’re sure to enjoy the traditionally convivial atmosphere, which is in keeping with the spirit at the old Kutsher’s Country Club in the Catskills. The proof is in the kids’ menu, which features beef and brisket meatballs and crispy latkes served not with caviar, but with local applesauce. Photo courtesy of Evan Sung/Kutsher’s TriBeCa
