Smoked fish---Russ & Daughters/Barney Greengrass

Shayna Madel | Sep 5, 2007 10:40 AM

For over 40 years, Mom, who lives in western Nassau, has always bought her break fast fish platters from the same place in Roslyn. Don't get me wrong---fabulous fish, beautiful platters, good service. BUT, their prices, at least for the last few years, have been one step away from gouging. The holiday catering menu just arrived and their prices are easily 1/3 more than either Russ & Daughters or Barney Greengrass, which I have always heard so much about. So I am thinking if a family member can get to either of these places, more likely Russ & Daughters, should we do it? Is the fish great? Is Russ & Daughters still as fabulous as it was when Mom catered in my brother's bris at Beth Isreal Hospital in 1962? And how insane is it to pick up an order on the day before Yom Kippur?
