Without a physical storefront, Romanian immigrant Yonah Schimmel first sold his knishes using a pushcart around New York’s Lower East Side. As business grew, he established his bakery on Houston Street in the 1890s. Yonah Schimmel Knishes has since been a neighborhood fixture, despite the changes on the Lower East Side over the decades.
Today, Yonah Schimmel still makes knishes the traditional way—hand-wrapping a potato or kasha (buckwheat grain) filling with a thin layer of dough before baking. Now for this first time since opening in 1910, Yonah Schimmel is shipping their iconic knishes nationwide from their original Lower East Side shop.
