There's something to be said about New York bagels: it is simply the best in the world. Could it be from the water? Could it be because they've been dishing it out for years? Regardless, Russ and Daughters is iconic to get your bagel fix whilst in New York City.
Established in 1914, Joel Russ and his three daughters set up their first brick and mortar spot in the Lower East Side. It is currently in its fourth generation with multiple locations throughout the city.
Upon entering the original store front in the LES, the place was chaotic. People were everywhere and everyone wanted a taste of their bagels. In order to maintain some type of organization, you grab a number and wait til your number is called. You should know what you want at the time of order..but don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to figure that out. We ended up waiting about a half hour and considering the amount of people there, it wasn't too bad.
The store doesn't just have bagels. They have an array of menu items that range from matzo ball soup to babkas to salads. Basically you can eat your heart out here and be satisfied.
