Russ & Daughters has everything you need for an appetizing Passover.

Sam Sifton of the NY Times recently wrote about New York food staple Russ & Daughters:
Over time the place has become more than simply a store. Russ & Daughters is, for many, a secular synagogue, a temple to the enduring power of food and memory. “I smell Judaism,” a customer once told Niki: brine and yeast and smoke.
But gentiles are welcome, too. As Lenny Bruce said, “If you’re from New York and you’re Catholic, you’re still Jewish.” (He added, “If you’re from Butte, Mont., and you’re Jewish, you’re still goyish.”)
Tonight at 92Y, Leonard Lopate of WNYC sits down with two generations of owners - Mark Russ Federman, Josh Russ Tupper and Niki Russ Federman - to talk about The House that Herring Built.

"Here’s a List of Restaurants on Tumblr"
Thank you to Bloomberg food critic Ryan Sutton for including us on his great list of restaurants on Tumblr. (Sutton is also the proprietor of two of our favorite industry Tumblr blogs: The Bad Deal and The Price Hike.)
We at The Price Hike and The Bad Deal hope this list can rival the number of restaurants on Facebook one day. As we’ve said before, Tumblr is a fine way to share your daily menus and your daily dishes with your daily diners on a daily basis. Let us know if we’re missing anyone and we’ll add’em on, fine brothers and sisters.
Update (12:10pm): added Nopalize, Pies & Thighs and more. Russ & Daughters isn’t a restaurant but they sell good caviar and they rock so why the heck not include them?.

Bon Appetit featured Russ & Daughters caviar (American Transmontanus) in their December issue. They wrote:
GIFTS THAT WRAP THEMSELVES
Skip the fancy paper, ribbons, and time spent getting the package just so. These gifts look as good as they taste.
Russ & Daughters Caviar – The Russ & Daughters logo is a New York icon, and their caviar tin lends a luxe touch to any party. We love the roe from sustainably raised California sturgeon.
