The best Jewish appetizing in the city...this translates to the place to get your bagel and lox and or variety of cream cheeses. There are no tables, so you take this to go. The horseradish cream cheese is amazing. I love the old school salty Belly Lox. They also tithed me onto a smoked salmon from New Zealand recently

Classic w egg bagel, plain cream cheese. I mean, this is what I came to NY for, the bagels and Jewish deli goodness. Unfortunately, the classic didn't quite blow me away, but it was still tasty nonetheless. Might have helped if the bagel was better, but I get that over at Essabagel.
Glad to say I've tried the lox here, but probably won't be back.

Smoked salmon heaven. The line can be long (grab a number immediately upon entering), but a lot of people leave when they find out they have to wait so sometimes they'll zoom through a bunch of numbers. Nova cold smoked salmon, caviar, cream cheese, bagels, herrings and cheeses...I'm now ruined on all other smoked salmon, because I've now experienced the best there is.

One of the best places in NYC to get traditional jewish "appetizing" They have a a beautiful selection of smoked fish (at least 8 different varieties of smoked salmon ranging from intensely smoked to traditional belly lox to kippered salmon). Also excellent selection of cream cheeses, roe and other smoked fish (sable, sturgeon, chubs, whitefish salad, etc). Best quality and service. Take the fish to go or have them build you a sandwich. Not sure where they get their bagels but they are not my favorite.

Family run business dating back to 1914, they specialize in caviar, smoked fish, herring, bagels and elegant food gifts. Come and get some snacks to go, or to build up your dinner offerings. Russ and Daughters also offers catering services, if you are interested in that.

Like a candy shop filled with smoked fish and caviar! There's a wide selection of fish and caviar here, tourists and locals alike come in. Things can get cramped inside, so grab a number quick. I like to pick up some traditional lox, caviar, and a babka. I believe Greens makes their babkas, which in my opinion are the best in the city!
