When it comes to purchasing already-prepared Hanukkah latkes–those irresistible potato pancakes that are to Hanukkah as fruit cake is to Christmas–the Upper West Side abounds with dining-in or take-out options.

“We do a beautiful job on latkes,” remarked Nick the cook at Barney Greengrass, the iconic dairy restaurant on Amsterdam Avenue on New York’s Upper West Side.

If you want latkes to eat in or take home, the famed eatery will be happy to supply them. They’re already prepared and ready to purchase on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. During the rest of the week, call ahead, “and we’ll make them for you,” Nick advised.

Here are some places on the Upper West Side to purchase latkes for your Hanukkah celebration.
