Eater.com posted a video clip of Russ & Daughters on “Louie.” Last week’s episode of Louis C.K.’s amazing show featured Parker Posey, and the sweet pair had a first date at Russ & Daughters. Please watch.
Raphael Brion, at Eater, wrote, “Last night on Louie, Louie C.K. was out on a date with Parker Posey in New York City, and she took him to Russ and Daughters, the venerable purveyor of smoked fish and caviar. And they chow down, hard. Heavy on the food porn, it’s just a great one-minute poem to a landmark New York institution.”
Congratulations and mazel tov to Anthony Bourdain and all our friends at Zero Point Zero!
