A VERY LOWER EAST SIDE JEWISH CHRISTMAS WITH MISSION CHINESE FOOD AND RUSS & DAUGHTERS CAFE

Russ & Daughters is always busy on Christmas - customers have traditionally ordered gifts for nationwide shipping and delivery in NYC, have picked out fish for The Feast of the Seven Fishes, have dined on bagels and lox under the tree, and have picked up snacks to sneak into movie theaters! This year, since we finally have a restaurant, we wanted to do something fun with some of our local friends: Danny Bowien and the team Mission Chinese Food. We worked together to present a family-style dinner feast of Mission Chinese Food favorites and appetizing Russ & Daughters twists. A joyous time was had by all!

A portion of each ticket was donated to Henry Street Settlement  - which opens doors of opportunity to enrich lives and enhance human progress for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social services, arts, and health care programs.
