Months of rumors to the contrary, Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery is reportedly to remain at 137 East Houston. We have been hearing persistent chatter from locals about a possible closure and/or move since last November. Our latest intel had it that their landlord intended to boot the century-old lunch counter.
“We’ve been here for over 100 years, and are planning to stay another hundred,” Ellen Anistratov, manager, told Heeb Magazine yesterday.
This rebuttal is definitely great news to savor, for we love the Yonah Schimmel knish. We still worry, though, given the confirmation that new “investors” are sought and that an ambiguous “expansion” is afoot.
