Over 100 years ago, the Russ family emigrated from Poland and sold caviar, smoked salmon, herring, and chopped liver from a pushcart. Today, Russ & Daughters, the family-owned "appetizing store," is a Lower East Side landmark for history buffs and foodies alike. Mark Russ Federman, the shop's former owner, recently wrote a memoir—Russ & Daughters: Reflections and Recipes from the House That Herring Built—filled with juicy details about the four generations of people behind the famed fish.
