AN AFTERNOON SCHMOOZE WITH MARK FEDERMAN OF RUSS AND DAUGHTERS
Join us for six different kinds of lox, sliced thin enough “to read the Times through” (if it’s too thick chop it up and scramble it with eggs), herring in mustard sauce, herring in cream sauce herring in wine sauce, herring ten different ways, whitefish salad to die for, halvah, strudel, all the delight of the lower east side. And the best bagels, pump and Russian black bread this side of Orchard Street.
The reins of Russ and Daughters, one of the original purveyors of appetizing delights in the city (the “Louvre of Lox” says the London Sunday Times) have passed to a daughter and nephew, so the scion, Mark Federman has had the time to write a book. A little of this and a little of that. Recipes, gossip, and a history of the Lower East Side.
And he’ll be here, June 9 as part of Speakers at Temple Emanuel, for an afternoon of schmoozing and eating. This very special afternoon will be limited so please call the office for more details and to reserve early.
