Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
On the 100th anniversary of Russ & Daughters, the Lower East Side appetizing store that gained notoriety for its smoked fish selection, a new café was opened to allow patrons a chance to dine in. Families can still nosh on appetizers like potato latkes with wild salmon roe and creme fraiche and Russ & Daughters fishsticks with gaspe nova, scallion cream cheese, shissel rye crust with cocktail and tartar sauce. They’ll also have breakfast items, eggs, soups and herring dishes to choose from. Order a platter of a variety of smoked fish served with cream cheese, onion, tomato capers, pickles and bread and you’ll have enough to feed a crew of four. Sweet treats include blintzes, chocolate babka French toast, noodle kugel and challah bread pudding.
