Listen: How Russ & Daughters Keeps a 100-Year-Old Jewish Deli Modern

Lower East Side’s 102-year old Russ & Daughters is one of the oldest Jewish Deli’s in the City, yet is still one of the most popular. In this podcast from our friends at Serious Eats, hear how the restaurant is keeping things fresh without breaking from tradition.

On this episode, you’ll hear what this rare team’s secret sauce is, and how they keep the hamische (that’s Yiddish for “cozy and warm”) spirit that has pervaded Russ & Daughters for a hundred years alive and more than well. Hint: It’s not the great smoked fish, bagels, cream cheese, and sweets you can buy at the store, but those are important.

Listen above, then check out the accompanying article for more.
