Best Herring

  • Russ & Daughters Café

    127 Orchard St., nr. Delancey St.; 212-475-4881

    If you pine for the days when herring in all its slippery, delicious forms was a staple of every food-savvy New Yorker’s diet, you’re finally in luck. The herring freaks at Russ & Daughters Café devote an entire section of the menu to this noble fish, and the choices include a trio of pickled herring, and schmaltz herring with a shot of vodka. They’re both good, but for the true herring flâneur, the best option is the “assorted plate,” which at $20 is so reasonably priced that you just might want to order it twice.
