Is Russ & Daughters Cafe everything l hoped it would be? Yes.

l kept it simple: The Shtetl: smoked sable, goat cream cheese, bialy [fresh from Kossar's], capers, tomato, red onion. The sable was sublime, absolutely melting in the mouth. The service was very nice. The menu has a lot of items, both food and drink, that look very interesting and enticing. The place has the ambiance of a more warmly-lit Russ-of-Houston St.

l went at about 4:30, and was seated immediately. Starting next week they start opening at 8am [!]. l barely scratched the surface of the menu [didn't even try an egg cream], but something tells me they've just hit it out of the park. More power to 'em, and more smoked and brined delights for me!

lt only took a hundred years, but damn, it was worth the wait.
