Russ & Daughters

Enjoy Russ & Daughters from New York, NY. Known for "legendary appetizing" by specializing in foods that go with bagels, you can select from an assortment of cream cheeses and smoked salmon. In 1907, Joel Russ immigrated from the shtetl of Strzyzow, now part of modern day Poland. He got his start selling schmaltz herring out of a barrel to the throngs of Eastern European Jews on the Lower East Side. It took him seven years to work his way up from that first herring barrel to having a pushcart operation, a horse and wagon, and then, in 1914, a brick and mortar store. The original store was on Orchard Street. In 1920, he moved the store around the corner to 179 East Houston Street, where it has been ever since.
