The revered NYC appetizing shop and café Russ & Daughters has good news for its fans uptown. Niki Russ Federman, current fourth-generation owner of the century-old appetizing shop, has announced that come 2015 there will be a sit-down Russ & Daughters café at The Jewish Museum on 92nd St. and Fifth Ave.
Following a marked history of success, Russ & Daughters opened a café around the corner from their original Lower East Side shop earlier this year (we named the café one of NYC’s Best New Restaurants of 2014). But unlike the original appetizing shop and the newly-opened Orchard Street cafe, the Jewish Museum’s 75-seat sit-down café and take-out retail counter will be kosher.
In a press release, Russ Federman said,
As R&Ds’ recent trend of expansion continues, long-time fans of the eatery can look forward to the Jewish Museum spot offering “traditional favorites alongside newly reinterpreted classics.”
The café is projected to open in early 2015. We can not wait.
