Russ & Daughters is a Jewish appetizing institution boasting an eclectic selection of specialty foods, having mastered the art of homemade pickled lox alongside caviar, bialys, and other traditional favorites. Visit any of the three prominent locations, Russ & Daughters on East Houston, Russ & Daughters Café on 127 Orchard St., or Russ & Daughters Brooklyn, to encounter true New York-style appetizing foods.

Family-owned and born back in 1914, Russ & Daughters is popular for a reason, and we promise that any time spent in a queue is absolutely worth it (but if queuing isn’t your thing, we’d recommend visiting on a weekday morning to avoid the bagel-obsessed crowds). This century-old gem is open daily to walk-ins only. Note that if you fancy a sit-down experience inside, opt for the café on Orchard St.
