My Review of Russ & Daughters in New York
With all the research we did about food to try in New York City, we were very fortunate to get to enjoy some amazing food from some really cool restaurants.
Some of the places were famous while others were random spots that didn’t stand out at all but still served some great dishes. However, when you try as many restaurants we did, you are bound to visit a few that are disappointing.
And when we tried to create a little food tour on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, we tried some restaurants I wasn’t a fan of – one of which being Russ & Daughters.
Once we had our bagel and Cel-Ray, we found a spot outside to try our purchases. I took a bite of the Everything bagel and realized the whole “New York bagels are so much better” is a myth. If Russ & Daughters is winning awards for having the best bagels in a city that is famous for its bagels, I must be missing something. It wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t anything unique or memorable. And the Cel-Ray soda…WHAT?! How in the world do people like this drink? It’s a combination of celery and sugar. It’s also disgusting.
Maybe I just don’t get it and I’m definitely not buying into the hype. For me, Russ & Daughters was nothing special and New York bagels weren’t either.
