Hugs and knishes.
Hugs and knishes.

Last night at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards, Jerry O’Connell — a native New Yorker who’s been living in Los Angeles for most of his adult life — told Grub Street that the first thing he does when he’s back in the city is head to Katz’s. “I go right for their Reuben,” says the star of Seminar on Broadway. “It’s my favorite. I love the process — they still have the ticket process there. I love all the beers on tap.” His other fave? Yonah Schimmel Knishes. “I pick up a couple and put them in the freezer, and then put them in the microwave when I come home from doing the play. There’s Yonah Schimmel, and then there’s everything else. I don’t believe you’re allowed to use the term knish unless you’re eating a Yonah Schimmel.” To that, O’Connell’s wife, Rebecca Romijn, sheepishly confessed that she’s never had one. “I’ll introduce her,” assured Jerry.
