“Eating Delancey” — what a super name for a book. I’ve had this relatively new volume by Aaron Rezny and Jordan Schaps on my desk for a little while now, and I keep dipping back into it because it’s so rich in delicious tidbits about the Jewish foodways of New York’s Lower East Side.

For New Yorkers, the Lower East Side has long been the go-to neighborhood for classic Jewish food. In recent years, though, the area has lost some of its kosher cred, with the closing of places like Shalom Chai pizzeria and the soon-to-be-shuttered Streit’s Matzo Factory. Nonetheless, the historically Jewish area continues to draw hungry crowds.
