Village Voice's Description

With a variety of the best smoked salmon in the city, Russ & Das also has the best prices. It has been in the Russ family since 1914, and in the same small, immaculate location. The staff is knowledgeable and will let you taste the salmon if you have a commitment aissuea. And they are fish slicing masters (Felix is your man for super-thin pieces). There is also sable, sturgeon, whole whitefish, and chubs, as well as salty, smoky, house-made whitefish salad. Around New Yearas, thereas a caviar express line when things get intense. (They take orders online and in advance by phone, too.) On the sweet side, thereas kookaburra licorice, chocolate bark, and jelly rings, and a huge dried fruit assortment.

    During a serious Jonesing episode for the Big Apple, I ordered bagels, cream cheese, chopped liver, smoked salmon, and whitefish and had the lot shipped overnight to Sacramento, CA. Although shipping cost more than the food, it was well worth the investment. Everything was fresh and very delicious. Thanks R&D for helping me manage my NYC cravings!

    whitefish-and-baked-salmon salad to horseradish-dill cream cheese and wasabi-infused flying-fish roe make a great sandwich

    The chopped liver at Russ & Daughters is enriched with caramelized onion and chopped boiled egg. The rugged mash is pleasantly mild, with earthy, minerally chicken livers.

    best place for appetizing - especially love their smoked fish and caviar – the best in the city! Love their whitefish salad too!
