Braids of Gold: Worthy Challah in Westchester

Friday is challah day at Pleasantville’s Jackson and Wheeler, and it’s worth marking your calendar. Great stuff, says smokeyrm, who advises going early because they sell out fast. Even those who don’t like the restaurant, like spa, say its bakery does some nice work.

White Plains Bake Shop is another dependable source for challah in Westchester–as well as hamentaschen, babkas, Italian pastries, and other baked goods. Just don’t get the manager angry, cautions dolores.

Challah lovers also recommend Turco’s Super Ranch (in Hartsdale and Yorktown Heights), Scarsdale Pastry Center, Harrison Bake Shop, Cerbone’s in Rye Brook and, farther afield, Rockland Bakery in Nanuet and the online and phone outfit Challah Connection.
