After 103 years on the Lower East Side, Russ & Daughters, the landmark New York City appetizing shop and restaurant, opened a kosher location on the Upper East Side at the Jewish Museum, the preeminent U.S. institution exploring art and Jewish culture for over 110 years. 

Purveyors of the highest quality smoked fish, bagels, traditional baked goods, and appetizing foods, Russ & Daughters and the Russ & Daughters Cafe have garnered wide critical acclaim - including two stars from The New York Times, and being named #2 on Pete Wells's list of "The Best New Restaurants of 2014."

Family owned and operated for more than a century, we're delighted to bring a unique and authentic piece of New York City's cultural and culinary heritage and history from the Lower East Side to the Upper East Side, and into your home as well.

Russ & Daughters at the Jewish Museum is kosher, supervised by National Kosher Supervision, under the auspices of Rabbi Aaron Mehlman.
