Wish I could've tried everything on a menu. Visited the place with my friends and whatever we ordered, we loved it. I will definitely return to try other dishes.

This review is for the 179 E Houston, around the corner location to-go counter... Take a number, wait 45-60 min to get called, and watch people leave the line and give their number to people walking in the door to skip ahead of you. The...More

Visited here for brunch on a Tuesday during a short trip to NYC, it was busy but we were seated within 15 minutes which we were happy with. My sister opted for ‘Yum Kippered’ with a pumpernickel bagel and I went for the Herring Trio...More

While we were visiting NYC last week, we spent a day exploring the Lower East Side, and I knew we had to try Russ & Daughters Cafe. It was a Friday around lunchtime, and they had an 80-minute wait. But they take your phone number...More

This is a lovely restaurant, evoking the 1950s with its white jacketed staff, chrome fittings and retry styled signage. But it's the food that brings people here and this is Jewish deli food done with class and finesse. We were delighted with our choice of...More

You can't get quality authentic food like this anywhere else. Russ and Daughters is our go to place when we visit New York. A taste of old world goodness!

Had the classic board and it was legit. Quality ingredients, not super filling but enough. The coffee was good too. Will definitely be back!

First time at the famous Russ & Daughters and it was exceptional. I’m not even a herring kind of guy, but the trio herring sampler belongs in a Michelin three starred restaurant. Tender, flavorful and perfectly prepared and seasoned. Latkes are also a standout. Eggs...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
