ABOUT RUSS & DAUGHTERS

Russ & Daughters is a New York culinary and cultural icon, known for the highest quality appetizing foods: smoked fish, caviar, bagels, bialys, babka, and other traditional baked goods. The home of bagels & lox since 1914, Russ & Daughters has been continuously owned and operated by four generations of the Russ family. The original landmark shop on East Houston Street has been in the same spot for 105 years. Russ & Daughters continues to provide the tastes and traditions of a true New York experience.

Joel Russ, an Eastern European immigrant, arrived in America in 1907. He started his business from a herring barrel and then a pushcart, catering to the throngs of Jewish immigrants settling in New York City’s Lower East Side. In 1920, he opened his store at 179 East Houston Street, after a few years of operating out of a storefront around the corner. He renamed the business “Russ & Daughters,” after his three daughters who joined him as the second generation in the business. It became the first business in the United States with “& Daughters” in its name. In the late 1970’s Mark Russ Federman succeeded as the 3rd Generation, and for 30 years ran the shop along with his wife, Maria. They’re now retired. Mark Russ Federman is the author of a celebrated memoir: “Russ & Daughters: The House That Herring Built.” Russ & Daughters is owned and operated by the 4th Generation of the Russ family: Niki Russ Federman and Josh Russ Tupper.

In 2014, upon the 100th anniversary of Russ & Daughters, 4th Generation Owners Josh Russ Tupper and Niki Russ Federman opened Russ & Daughters Cafe: a restaurant on Orchard Street, the street where their great-grandfather peddled herring from a barrel and a pushcart. In 2016, Russ & Daughters opened a new space combining a take-out appetizing counter and restaurant: Russ & Daughters at the Jewish Museum. In 2019, Russ & Daughters at the Brooklyn Navy Yard opened: the Appetizing Factory is an 18,000 square foot hub featuring our bakery, which is on view for all to see, an appetizing counter and expanded nationwide shipping hub.

Niki and Josh Russ, and Russ & Daughters, have been honored with awards from the New York City Mayor’s Office, the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, The Foundation for Jewish Culture, and The New York State Senate, which passed a unanimous resolution “Commending Russ and Daughters upon the occasion of celebrating its 100th Anniversary.”

Russ & Daughters has received praise in countless national and international publications, and Russ & Daughters Cafe was named #2 on Pete Wells’s New York Times list of “The 10 Best New Restaurants of 2014.” Russ & Daughters has been featured in the PBS documentaries: The Jews of New York and The Sturgeon Queens.

Russ & Daughters reflects four generations of the Russ family’s dedication to excellence, authenticity, history, and tradition.
