Enter on Orchard St.

It’s been a banner centennial year for Russ & Daughters. The iconic appetizing haunt opened its cafe namesake on Orchard Street last spring, the Sturgeon Queens film celebrated the family business on the big screen, and now, another expansion.

Yes. For the second time in the last year, Russ & Daughters is growing. Only this go-round, it’s outside the confines of the Lower East Side. Eater has the scoop, noting that the brand will be opening a dual purpose 75-seat cafe and retail counter inside the Jewish Museum on Fifth Avenue. The eatery itself will be Glatt Kosher, unlike the other locations. (Still getting used to referring to Russ & Daughters in the plural sense)

Opening of this newest Upper East Side annex is scheduled for sometime next year.
