If you are in New York City make sure you make a trip to the Lower East Side and visit Russ & Daughters. It is a family-owned shop of high-end smoked fish, caviar & New York-style specialty foods since 1914. So much fun stuff in there but the show stealer is the lox. They have around 6 different kinds and it is the freshest and tastiest you will ever have. I promise. I got Gravlax on a bagel with chive cream cheese, tomato, onion and capers. Just doesn’t get any better. They have just recently opened Russ & Daughters Cafe a block away which is a sit down joint serving all your Jewish favorites. Go and enjoy.
