Throwback poster for Russ & Daughters outside 127 Orchard St.

Russ & Daughters turns 100 this year, and it’s celebrating with a brand new full-service restaurant at 127 Orchard Street. There’s plenty of throwback signage onsite to announce its forthcoming arrival (it’s from a 1949 renovation of the East Houston shop). That much we knew. The latest intel, however, pins an opening date for the the 65-seat eatery at sometime in the next few months.

The new “Russ & Daughters Cafe,” as the establishment is tentatively called, will reportedly serve traditional fare like blintzes and gefilte fish. And now it’s seeking help across the board. According to an open call listed over at Culinary Agents, pretty much every position is presently sought:
