Russ & Daughters

After more than a century on the Lower East Side, Russ & Daughters, the New York City culinary landmark famous for their bagels and lox, smoked fish, and traditional baked goods opened a restaurant and take-out appetizing counter at the Jewish Museum, on the Upper East Side. Presenting appetizing classics with timeless appeal in the Museum’s beautiful and historic setting, it’s a match that is, as they say, bashert (meant-to-be)!

Russ & Daughters at the Jewish Museum remains temporarily closed. For further information please visit www.russanddaughters.com.
