Open only a mere few days, and I can tell you not to wait another minute to visit Russ & Daughters Cafe.  The interior is sparkly white and mute turquoise, upscale diner meets Miami vibe.  Go for the boards of smoked fish and other accoutrements, Gaspe Nova, Sable, Sturgeon, or Kippered Salmon. Very pleasantly surprised by the $10 bloody marys – Caraway-infused vodka with rye crouton and pickled veg pictured below. Egg creams, knishes, eggs, pickled herring, chopped liver, matzo brei, blintzes, babka french toast. Everything I grew up on with a fresh twist.

Hopefully you have some deep pockets and can afford to splurge for a few things to share, because loxin’ ain’t easy (on the wallet).

Note: The actual entrance is just North of Delancey at 127 Orchard, not on Allen.
