"An appetizing store has the mingling odors of salt, smoke, pickle and sweet," says Federman, who ran Russ and Daughters from 1978 until he retired three years ago. "So, all of that coming together makes for a unique sensory experience."
Joel Rose, writing for The Salt, tells the story of Russ and Daughters, an appetizing store on New York's Lower East Side. We love how this family-run delicatessen has become a world famous institution. They opened on the Lower East Side in 1914, and specialise in smoked fish and bagels of the highest quality.
