Russ & Daughters on the lower east side is part of New York City culture and history. I’ve heard about, read about it, but being there and hearing what everyone was ordering and the food talk and the smells….really an unbelievable experience. Russ & Daughters is a fourth generation business that started in 1914. Not only is it the best food, but it’s prepared for you by family. A true New York Experience. When we were leaving I heard a little girl say to her mother, “I want to eat my pickle now.” Her mother turned to her and said, “Why don’t we sit on the bench?” I’m thinking, where is this bench? It’s 32 degrees, it’s getting dark and they go outside and sit on the bench so she can have her pickle. I love New York!
