A Sunday well spent brings a week’s of content, as the saying goes. What could be better than a sunny 60 degree day in February on the Upper East Side with someone you love? Throw in a bagel and cream cheese you say, with some of the best cured fish in the city? Well, ok.
Russ and Daughters is a New York institution, with a gritty and wonderful flagship location on the Lower East Side. Want a fine, comprehensive, and dazzling array of cured fish? Caviar? Babka? Well, head down, grab a ticket, and wait in line (and DO NOT lose that ticket, my friend). Looking for a slightly more polished and artsy experience? Well, do what we did yesterday and head all the way uptown to the Russ and Daughters Cafe, nestled in the basement of the Jewish Museum. Sit down, have an egg cream, and an appetizing platter that will knock your socks off. Nosh away, friends. Nosh away.
