Opened in 1914, Russ & Daughters still resides in its original location on Houston Street in the Lower East Side. A New York staple, the teeny shop is known for its fish, specifically its bagels and smoked salmon (lox). Topped with a schmear, these are the bagels that New York is known for: oversized, overstuffed and indescribably delicious. While it's this location that carries on the old-school vibe and dying tradition of the Jewish deli, you should be aware that there isn't any seating. If that puts a cramp in your style, have no fear: the family recently opened a cafe - complete with the same smoked fish classics, plus platters, eggs and matzo ball soup - just around the corner at 127 Orchard Street.
- Breakfast: "Russ & Daughters ships nationwide, so optimize your time at the counter by organizing to have a box of delicacies sent home."
- Best for Breakfast Because: In Anthony Bourdain's words, there are few places left that can boast that they're the oldest, and also the best. This is one of them.
