Russ & Daughters

Legendary NYC Appetizing Since 1914

There was a time when this landmark shop was merely an Eastern European immigrant with a sack hoisted over his shoulders selling food to support his family and save up for a pushcart… which turned into a horse & wagon… which eventually turned into a widely acclaimed NYC appetizing shop recognized for its contributions to the historical landscape of NYC’s Lower East Side. When Joel Russ opened his shop in 1914, there were appetizing stores on every corner. Now, over a century later, Russ & Daughters is one of the last of its kind, providing tastes and traditions from the old-world from the same place on Houston Street. Housed in a former tenement building and run by the Russ family’s fourth generation, Russ & Daughters is a true taste of old NY.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Russ & Daughters was designated "a part of NY's cultural heritage" by the Smithsonian Institute and is believed to be the first US company to have "& Daughters" in its name. A darling in the press through the generations, this is a top pick for many prominent chefs & locals - even Martha Stewart has a favorite gift package here.
