Russ & Daughters Celebrates Herring

Posted on | June 6, 2011 | No Comments

Apparently it’s Herring Season! Russ & Daughters on Houston Street, home of (what is in my opinion) the best bagels, Lox & smoked fish is throwing a bash at the Astor Center on June 28th.  The short 4-5 week timeline where herring are at their optimum means that this is a chance not to be missed.  Anything involving Russ & Daughters is enough to get me excited, but this event is taken to a whole new level by the fact that the insanely talented April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig, John Dory, The Breslin, etc. etc.) will be making a dish for this feast.  Marinated, salted, smoked, pickled, the event promised pretty much every way herring can be served.  Tickets also include cocktail pairings.

The fish is provided by New Catch Holland Herring, tickets are $75 & available online & at Russ & Daughters. If you can’t make it to the event,  the herring is still for sale at the shop & online; $4.49 per herring or $39.95 for a tray of 10.
