Repost @grubstreet: "It's an exciting time for 103-year-old @russanddaughters - Owners Niki Russ Federman and Josh Russ Tupper have opened a location on the Upper East Side, and they also have plans to expand to Brooklyn [Navy Yard] for the first time ever. At the former, inside @thejewishmuseum, there's both a 60-seat, sit-down restaurant and a take-out appetizing counter. Federman and Tupper are now producing their own bagels, bialys, babka, and other pastries, and the menu at the Jewish Museum is entirely kosher — another first.
"Every time we open a new place, people are like, 'What are you doing? Why not just keep the store?'" Tupper says. "But there are so many customers that come down to the Lower East Side café. To walk around and speak to these people, who are just so glad we're up there ... there's been an outpouring of emotion. It feels really good to give that to people."
