Russ and Daughters

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.

  1. We just walked by this today, but sadly it was closed. We checked out Katz's a few stores over, but everyone was full from Thanksgiving and the bagels left were looking lonely in their case so no one bought anything. Too bad because now I'm hungry!
