The fact that there’s a Russ & Daughters here is possibly the best-kept secret on the Upper East Side. It’s both a full-service restaurant and a takeout operation, and it’s buried in the basement of The Jewish Museum on 92nd Street and 5th Avenue. It isn’t the most accessible (you have to go through a metal detector at the museum, then hop in an elevator or take the stairs), but it still improves the quality of life on the Upper East Side. Stop by on a Sunday morning and get a bagel with some best smoked salmon in the city.
