For more than a century, Russ & Daughters’s iconic Houston Street appetizing shop has served top-of-the-line bagels and smoked fish to New York residents and visitors alike, to be enjoyed as part of a dreamy breakfast arrangement at home or devoured from a paper wrapper on the street. In 2014, with the opening of Russ & Daughters Cafe, on Orchard Street, the Russ family expanded their focus by inviting New York to sit down on-site and enjoy their specialties the way they would prepare them. This warm and bustling space offers golden-skinned whitefish, juicy pastrami, and glittering caviar done to their absolute best, and the rye bread is sonnet-worthy. To avoid the breakfast-time queues (which sometimes go out the door), stop by for a weekday lunch.
