Jewish food is a lot of things. Comforting. Steeped in tradition. A no-fail fattening agent for concerned grandmas the world over.
What is it not, one would think, is stylish. Until now. Some of Brooklyn’s coolest — and youngest — members of the tribe are spinning Bubby’s old recipes into gastronomic gold, taking schmaltz-laden war horses like brisket, latkes, matzoh balls, chopped liver, and even gefilte fish to new culinary heights. So whether you choose to dine out at one of these Jewish nouveau destinations, or take their goodies to go, it’s guaranteed that your High Holiday feast will be the hottest, hippest ticket in town this year.
