The Russ & Daughters Appetizing Factory is open! Featuring our bakery, which is on view for all to see, an appetizing shop where you can get your favorite classic bagels & lox or smoked fish by the pound, and our traditional baked goods right out of the oven, our expanded nationwide shipping hub, new kitchens, and an event space.
Since 1914, the Lower East Side has been the historic and spiritual home and grounding nexus of Russ & Daughters. In 2014, on the eve of our 100th anniversary, we opened Russ & Daughters Cafe, just around the corner, to feed — literally and figuratively — the desire to have our food sitting down in our space. With the addition of Russ & Daughters at the Jewish Museum in 2016, we extended our base from the Lower East Side to the Upper East Side.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that Russ & Daughters is now also part of the Brooklyn community with the opening of Russ & Daughters at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Over the past two years, we have designed and built out an 18,000 square foot base of operations, which includes our bakery, nationwide shipping facility, kitchens, a beautiful appetizing store, and (future) private events space. We have poured ourselves into this project to ensure that Russ & Daughters has the ability to thrive while staying in New York City for generations to come. We think Joel Russ, our great-grandfather, and founder, and his daughters would be proud. We hope that you will be too.
Russ & Daughters at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is more than another location. We think of it as our Appetizing Factory! Visit us and you will see our bakery where we make our bagels, bialys, babka, breads (and other delicious eats that don’t start with “b”). Right next to the bakery is our appetizing counter, where you can pick up an appetizing spread to take home, or enjoy it in the public seating area near our space.
Russ & Daughters at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is located in Building 77, the former depot for all the supplies that were loaded onto the naval ships built here, which like the rest of the Navy Yard, houses a vibrant community of businesses, artists, craftspeople, and industry. Just as Russ & Daughters has been part of the fabric of New York for over a century; the Navy Yard has done so for over 200 years.
We hope you will come experience this living history while you watch us as we make the foods you love. Take a number and order at the counter just like you do in Manhattan.
