Went to Russ and Daughters twice during our stay - once at the Jewish Museum and once in the Lower East side. The food was really good and service great.

We love coming here for fish and babka. Lox, tuna, sable, you name it. You won't be disappointed. There's a small park across the street that you could bring your sandwich to eat. Very busy but they work quickly.

Here about this place through the grape vine. Oh man, it was so good. After waiting about 30mins, I ordered the ‘Daughter Delight’ It was out of this world. Will definitely be heading back when in NYC again.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighborhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
