Russ and Daughters in the LES.
A perfect bagel with spread and fish will set you back more than $10, but it's worth it. This is the most perfect lox and cream cheese bagel I've ever had.
I opted for the Scottish salmon, a plain bagel, horseradish cream cheese with capers. Tomorrow I'll try something else ;o)
There certainly is no shortage of choices.
Grab a coffee and some of the delicious chocolates or pastries from the sweets counter while you're there too. Or stock up on R&D's own caviar - never know when you may need that.
