Mile End may have brought Montreal-style smoked meat to New York, but when it comes to potato pancakes, says owner Noah Bernamoff, there are no regional distinctions only good latkes and bad latkes. For the restaurants first Festival of Lights (and relatedly, of foods fried in oil), Bernamoff will offer a nightly latke trio ($10): one Yukon-chive, one butternut squash, and one parsnip-and-celery-root, garnished with tart housemade apple sauce, sweet chunky quincesauce, and smoked-paprika sour cream. For dessert: the doughnuts called sufganiyot, stuffed with Mile Ends own Concord-grape jelly, and olive-oil cake.
