russ and daughters russ & daughtersIMG_0091Russ & Daughters Appetizers_NYCRuss & 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!

    It’s so nice to hear the enthusiasm in your voice, it’s clear you love many things about being back on the East coast! This place looks amazing—it;s all appetizers? I’d be in heaven!

    My Father started his food business – “Paul’s” in 1945 and it is still going strong. I of course am partial to Mom and Pop shops.
    Wonderful images and I do love NY for these places that still keep going.

    I love seeing your pictures of the places in New York City that give us a glimpse of what life is like for the people that actually live there, where they shop and how they eat. Plus I love the black and white photos.
