1. Russ & Daughters

    Russ & Daughters

    179 E. Houston St.
    New York, NY 10002

    Russ & Daughters isn’t your typical bagel place. This is a smoked fish museum of deliciousness that people come from near and far to experience.

  2. 2nd Ave Deli

    2nd Ave Deli

    162 E. 33rd St.
    New York, NY 10016

    When the original 2nd Ave Deli closed, lots of New Yorkers channeled some nostalgic rage. At the new Murray Hill location, the old school charm may be gone, but the matzoh ball soup and pastrami sandwich have remained pretty much untouched.

  3. Mikes Bistro

    Mike’s Bistro

    228 W. 72nd St.
    New York, NY 10023

    Mike’s Bistro is a big deal in the world of kosher restaurants. Although its appearance might suggest differently, this is a popular special occasion spot, especially with the younger generation. The food is good, even though the decor isn’t.
