Female strand of hair in very expensive fish on holiday

So be prepared for stuck up staff (Jen) that will reject any fault and can?t take any complaints without making you feel horrible. The 50 plus years and 3 generations of family purchasing specialty fish from Russ and Daughters ends now! Our special family occasion reveals a female hair packaged within our very expensive fish. When I called to speak with Niki co owner, the service became ruder and I was called a liar. 100 years is all they have. Keep this up and the decline of long time loyal customers will continue to leave. Think twice if this is for a special occasion.

Good food but pricey!

This place gets a lot of hype, and the lox is really very good. However, a bagel sandwich with normal lox will easily cost you $12 depending on some of your fixins...

Too pricey for daily consumption, but a nice treat on occassion.

Tastiest Treats in New York at Russ & Daughters

We always pass by Russ & Daughters on our way to and from Katz's for pastrami and corned beef sandwiches (yum!) but never stopped in until we saw them featured on a television program. It all looked so clean and the proprietors took such pride in the thin slicing of the smoked salmon that we made a special effort to go the next day. It is a scrupulously clean store, beautifully stocked with all the fresh delicacies for which Jewish cooking is famous.
Although we only purchased a quarter pound of smoked salmon (which was FABULOUS), they gave us samples of a few different kinds and were very friendly, funny and informative. One of the owners was there and shared stories about his family with us. The other customers were very helpful and entertaining, as well.
We are putting it on our regular Houston Street routine.

Best Lox!

I come here to get my lox and cream cheese. The fish is always super fresh and their cream cheese is delicious. They have different varieties of cream cheese, caviar, baked goods....The staff is super nice, even on the busiest weekends.

Delectably silken lox, fluffy cream cheese, robust pickles and olives. A proud Lower East Side legacy.
