NYC: Russ & Daughters – Lox and Cream Cheese

Russ & Daughters New York

Russ & Daughters is one of my favorite bagel places in New York City, so for lunch, I dragged Poul along with me, for some bagel and salmon therapy. There’s no seating inside the shop, so you get the bagels to go and find a bench along the street outside.

On Orchard Street, there’s a Russ & Daughters café, which looks very neat and nice. The food there is also supposed to be good, but I still prefer the shop on Houston . Visiting the shop, which is more than 100 years old, is an experience in itself.

Just like Katz’s Delicatessen (read my blog post about the legendary Pastrami Sandwich at Katz’s) a few steps further down Houston Street, is famous for pastrami, Russ & Daughters are famous for smoked fish, and their selection of salmon is top notch. Poul wanted to try the Generational, which is a bagel (or a bialy) with smoked salmon and sturgeon, but I talked him into sharing a classic Nova lox and cream cheese on a plain bagel. I’ve tried The Generational before, and it’s great, but I know how much Poul loves salmon, so I knew it would be a good choice for both of us.
