After 100 years, it was time to give you a place to sit! Niki Russ Federman and Josh Russ Tupper - 4th Generation Owners of Russ & Daughters - opened the Russ & Daughters Cafe at 127 Orchard Street in May 2014, the very street where their great grandfather, Joel Russ, founded the business - first out of a herring barrel, then a pushcart, and later a small shop -- before moving to the shop's current location on Houston Street. That the Russ & Daughters Cafe would be built a century later on Orchard Street, where it all began, is certainly bashert! ("Bashert" is a Yiddish word that means "meant to be.")
Now, after a century on the Lower East Side, Russ & Daughters is proud to celebrate the 101st anniversary of Russ & Daughters as well as the 1st anniversary of the Russ & Daughters Cafe. Come visit us and be part of history at both locations!
