This is the largest of all the Russ & Daughters locations, and it has a big glass wall where you can watch them smoke whitefish, bake fresh babka, and boil bagels. More importantly, there's a counter where you can order pastries, bagel sandwiches, and other specialties - plus some seating if you want to stick around. Prepare to wait in line if you show up around 10:30 on a weekend (they open at 8am every day).

Russ & Daughters Cafe
Russ & Daughters has finally expanded, after 100 years in business. Now you can sit down in a comfy booth while you enjoy your lox, and it’s glorious.
Barney Greengrass is the definition of a Classic NYC Establishment. What’s not to love about a 100-year-old tradition of sturgeon scrambled eggs and a H&H bagel with lox, cream cheese and tomato?
