Waited 45 minutes on MLK day but it's convenient that they send you a text when your table is ready. The Super Heebster ( picture attached) was our favorite dish, with a mix of smoked whitefish and salmon salads and horseradish dill cream cheese that balanced out of the smokey flavor. We also got the Lower Sunny Side and Eggs Benny which were great, however this is a place I would go for the Noshes and Boards over the eggs. Underwhelmed by the Bloody Mary, but overall great, cute, diner feel with good service.

I took my mom for brunch, and although we waited for almost an hour, it was totally worth it. As usual the bagel with smoked salmon platter was perfect, the mimosas were very good, the eggs were fluffy and the chocolate babka to die for. I recommend avoiding peak hours like weekend brunch, and if you have to wait too long I walk a few streets over the original Russ and Daughters and get the bagel to go!.

I have never been to the restaurant, but I would love to after having been in the Russ & Daughters Cafe. I love it in there. My last breakfast was an everything bagel with caviar cream cheese! Caviar! Such a great start to the morning. There was a beautiful spread of various cream cheeses and gorgeous smoked salmon, plus a glass for chocolates and desserts. Russ & Daughters is enough to make anyone extremely happy. It's worth getting up earlier than usual to make it to this spot before work. And this place has been around for a while. My grandfather used to come here :-)
