Description

Lovers of lox unite! Join Mark Russ Federman, the third-generation owner of Russ & Daughters, the beloved appetizing store on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, for a celebration of its long history. In Russ & Daughters: The House That Herring Built, Federman shares his immigrant family’s rags-to-riches journey from a pushcart on Hester Street in 1907 to a landmark institution of Jewish cuisine. Dubbed “The Louvre of Lox” by the Sunday Times of London, Russ & Daughters has a devoted following that has included Bugsy Siegel, Zero Mostel, Martha Stewart and Calvin Trillin. Includes a special New York-style fish brunch featuring Russ & Daughters’ smoked and cured fish.

"Russ & Daughters occupies that rare and tiny place on the mountaintop reserved for those who are not just the oldest and the last – but also the best."
– Anthony Bourdain
