As part of a nationwide search in preparation for Hanukkah, which kicks off tonight, yesterday USA Today released its list of the ten best places for latkes this season. As you might expect, the list includes perennial favorites like Katz's Delicatessen in New York and Philadelphia's Famous 4th Street Delicatessen, both known as much for their heaping sandwiches as their potato pancakes. Miami's Blue Collar also received a spot on the list for its latkes, served year-round.
Blue Collar was the only Miami restaurant mentioned on the list, and Short Order reports that chef / owner Danny Serfer was "honored and humbled." Get an order for $10 at the restuarant; 730 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, 305-756-0366.
