I have to confess that the latkes made at Saul’s in celebration of Hanukkah look a lot better than the ones my grandmother used to make. If they appeal to you (and how could they not?), hurray over to north Shattuck tomorrow between noon and 7 p.m., or Saturday and Sunday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.  The latke tent will be set up outside Saul’s.


In the way of the best farm-to-table restaurants, Saul’s latkes have the best ingredients. I’m not sure of the source of the potatoes, but the eggs are from Glaum Egg Ranch, and the frying is done in local rice-bran oil. Latkes are $2.50 each or $27 for a dozen.
