Russ & Daughters Appetizing Store in NYC
I was reading this article
about the disappearing delis of NYC, and learned that the old natural companion to a kosher delicatessen was an "appetizing store" that offered fish and dairy products. The oldest remaining one is Russ & Daughters
which was founded in 1914 and is right down the street from Katz's Delicatessen
. I wish that I had known this when I visited Katz's and Yonah Schimmel's
. Has anyone been there?
