Experience: Aah the bagels and lox are really that good. Actually the best. Also tried with the bialys and equally good they are. The knishes were ok. Busy on weekends and the ambience is pleasant. Prices seem a little high but I’ll pay that for the lox and bagel every time.

Tips: Get there early to get a table or put your name down. On a first date? Get a seat at the bar to sit next to your date and have a more intimate talk. Review: Russ & Daughters is probably one of my favorite bagel shops, so I was very excited to get a chance to go to the cafe finally. We made a mistake on going on Memorial Day, which made the cafe packed and chaotic. Since it was closing at 3 (make sure to check for holiday times), there was a waitlist and wait for an hour for two people. They continued to take names and phone numbers until 2, where they would rudely turn people away. Once we were alerted for our table, it was another 15-minute wait until we were finally seated. However, once we were sitting, it was a fantastic experience. The cafe has a modern diner feel, with waiters wearing stylish white coats. The menu had a range of items to enjoy from challah toast to eggs benedict. However, the classic is a build your lox plate with your choice of bagel. FYI, your menu also serves as a food mat, which makes it all the better. The bagel was amazing as a Russ & Daughter's bagel should be and the option to make your lox bagel the way you want it was delicious.
Excellent place for all the time. Personally really like fishes especially salmon so this place is great for me. "The Classic" is one the the best meals in this restaurant. Well balanced and tasty.
