In NYC decided to check a restaurant to do off my list-- the fabled Russ and Daughters. I wish I had three stomachs because everything looked so good. If you want the quintessential Jewish deli experience this is the place to go.
I decided on the pastrami Russ-- pastrami cured salmon with sauerkraut and spicy mustard on a bagel. It was so good I basically licked the paper when I was done.
My only regret is that I didn't have more room so I could stop next door and get a knish from Yonah Schimmel's knishery. Oh well. Next time New York.
Great food this trip readers-- once Justin forwards me the menu from the place we ate at last night I'll fill you in on the delicious cheese soaked wonder that was our dinner (spoiler-- it includes beef hearts and avocado potato salad.)
Check out Russ and Daughters yourself-- 179 East Houston Street. New York, NY 10002. It's worth the trip.
