Russ & Daughters Cafe

Jewish in East Village & Lower East Side

Sit down and feast on shiny boiled bagels and perhaps the best lox in the city in all the comfort of an old-school diner, in this extension of the storied Jewish delicatessen Russ & Daughters, just up Orchard St. Aside from thick, smoky fish, there are potato latkes, borscht, eggs plenty of ways, and even chopped liver, if you must.

If you feel like a splurge, try the Russ Caviar Flight: 15g of three of their finest types for $150.
