“No More schlepping” declares the website of this small appetizing shop. Before Shelsky’s, Brooklynites craving a great bagel and lox, had to "schlep" to Russ and Daughters on Manhattan's Lower East Side. But, with its over ten varieties of salmon, five herrings, fresh bagels and bialys from Mill Basin Bagel Cafe, and pickles from Guss’s, Shelsky’s can satisfy your Jewish food cravings right in Carroll Gardens. The shop’s specialty is its cheekily-named sandwiches. The Brooklyn Native stacks your choice of a bialy or bagel with loads of whitefish, pickled herring, lox and a crunchy pickle, and the excellent Great Gatsby pairs pastrami salmon with horseradish cream cheese, red onion and honey mustard on rye bread. While the beautifully displayed fish and white-painted brick walls decorated with black and white family photos makes for a nice old-meets-new setting, you’ll have to enjoy it while you order as there’s no seating. On your way out, don’t miss a piece of the stellar chocolate lingonberry rugelach.Delivery
