I SPY: Brunch' in

Nov 17, 2016

Foodies, can you name the best smoked salmon in NYC?  Many argue it's century old Russ & Daughters.  I second that!  This famous kosher fish house is always packed with a line, and only up until 2014 it was all to go, until they opened their LES cafe.

But what are the chances of getting a seat down in their Orchard Street cafe on a weekend?  A ridiculously painful wait time, which I've never been able to hold out for!

However, I'm going to bring you in on a little secret, or do you already know?  I was on the Upper East side at the Jewish Museum on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised to find out that in their basement they also have a Russ & Daughters cafe.  The legit thing with the same menu as the LES cafe.  This discovery was the highlight of my museum visit!

Smoked salmon obviously a MUST.  I had mine with potato latkes and sunny side up eggs.  Followed by the warm chocolate babka which was heaven.  So good I went back yesterday to pick up a loaf for my Friends-giving party!  YUM.

The Jewish Museum cafe just opened earlier this year in February 2016, so people are still catching on. Your opportunity to grab a table before the crowds discover this hidden gem is now.  Just remember it is a kosher restaurant, so closed on Sabbath (Saturday).  But open Sunday's early for brunch.  Happy brunch'in!
