Russ and Daughters is a 4th generation family restaurant and cafe that is located in New York, NY.
The founder, Joel Russ was a Polish immigrant who settled in the Manhattan area in 1905. He began his business by catering to all Jewish immigrants who were settling in the Lower East Side. After successfully selling Polish mushrooms, he expanded by selling pickled herring and Polish mushrooms. Nine years later, in 1914, Joel opened a storefront around the corner from the stores current location and named it J. Russ International Appetizers.
In 1920, J. Russ International Appetizers then moved to the current location we all enjoy today. He later renamed his business to 'Russ and Daughters' after his three daughters became business partners.
