Before Russ & Daughters, I never thought that lox and bagels could possibly taste this good. Imagine thick, multiple layers of oily smoked salmon sliced perfectly, packed between NY style bagels with buttery, smooth cream cheese.
This is no doubt the BEST lox and bagel I’ve ever had! Russ & Daughters offer a range of smoked salmon from different regions (Scottish, Norwegian, etc) and cream cheeses(scallion, horseradish, caviar, tofu, etc). This place is pricey, depending on the choice of salmon, it’s about $10 for a set of salmon+cream cheese+bagel. It’s definitely worth a try though!
