Hanukkah is a holiday of fried things, and while latkes are great, donuts are better (fight us). For a few weeks in December, NYC’s bakers and donut makers fry one up for their bubbes and make one of the season's most glorious pastries: sufganiyot. Here’s where we’ll be getting our jelly-filled Hanukkah treats this year.

If you’ve never had a cruller from Daily Provisions, let the miracle of Hanukkah be your sign to get one ASAP. Their Sufganiyot Crullers are filled with strawberry jam and rolled in lemon-infused sugar, and you can pre-order them here in boxes of 6 or 12 until the 19th. 

Breads pulls out all the stops for Hanukkah, so it’s no surprise that they’re making four different sufganiyot flavors. You can opt for the traditional strawberry jam filling, or go avant-garde with passionfruit, vanilla, or chocolate. Better yet, be the star of your holiday gathering and get some of each so you can engage in the age-old Jewish tradition of arguing over which flavor is better.

Michaeli Bakery on the Lower East Side makes our favorite traditional jelly-filled sufganiyot, and this year, they’re walk-in only. They’re extremely light, packed with flavor, and will give you such warm, fuzzy feelings you’ll suddenly get the urge to call your mom while you stand outside and eat one. They’re also making seven other flavors, including some innovative options like Halva cream and pistachio. Come early in the day, because these will sell out.

Classics are classics for a reason, and that’s why we love the sufganiyot at Zabar’s. It’s unfussy, delicious, and you won’t have to plan your entire week around picking up a box of these. Put on your best Mrs. Maisel cosplay, schlep to the Upper West Side (if you don’t already live there) and make an event out of it. Pick up some smoked fish and babka while you’re at it.
