Celebrate Hanukkah with Kutsher's creative cuisine
TRIBECA (WABC) -- Just like the well-known community in the Catskills that attracted Jewish families every summer years ago, Kutsher's is serving up nostalgic Jewish American comfort food&with a twist.
Zach Kutsher's menu has all of the traditional dishes, including matzo ball soup and pastrami sandwiches. But when it comes to latkes, the eatery's potato pancakes are anything but plain. There's a different version for every night of Hanukkah.
