Russ & Daughters

For this past Mother’s Day, my mom, sister, and I got up bright and early (on a Sunday, love you mom) and headed downtown to Russ & Daughters.

Russ & Daughters Cafe opened in 2014, on the 100th anniversary of Russ & Daughters — the world-famous appetizing store and New York City institution. After a century in which generations of customers patiently waited in line at the store; it was time to give everyone a place to sit down.


If you couldn’t tell from the matzo ball soup, bagels, and smoked salmon, Russ & Daughters serves top quality “jewish delicatessen” food. From caviar to chocolate babka, there is something for everyone in their store and cafe. Now run by the 4th generation of the Russ family, you’d be hard pressed to find better lox in New York City. Most of the time there is little wait, but like most places in New York City, standard peak times like weekends and lunch time are definitely not the best times to go. But I would say that it’s worth the wait.
