Do you know the history behind New York’s iconic Russ & Daughters? An inspiring story, even more so if you are a woman. It’s believed that Russ & Daughters was the first business is history that used the word ‘Daughters’ instead of ‘Sons’.
It was the history behind Russ & Daughters, as well as the produce available that made me fall in love, just a little bit, with the establishment. On my last visit I quite happily sat on one of the benches out front of the main store, in icy cold conditions, and munched away on a bagel with smoked salmon and a schmeer. It was the best bagel I have ever eaten.
