What’s your favorite thing about

Russ & Daughters?
We’re serious about what we do, but we

also have fun.

What’s your favorite food here?
I have my own special sandwich, let’s call it “Ruddy Style.” It’s a crustless bagel with vegetable cream cheese, sturgeon, and whitefish and baked salmon salad. I haven’t seen anyone else make this combination.

What does the store mean to you?  
This place is like my second home.

What do you think Russ & Daughters means to our customers?
It means a lot to both old-timers and newer folks to be connected to a place that has been around for such a long time.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Spend time with my son.

What are some other favorite spots on the Lower East Side?
El Nueco Amanecer is a great Dominican restaurant. It’s a good crowd with all different kinds of people.

What else should people know about you?
To all the ladies: I’m single.
