LOWER EAST SIDE — Russ & Daughters Cafe is opening to the public on Wednesday, giving customers a chance to sit down and relax while enjoying the 100-year-old shop's smoked fish specialties.

The 65-seat cafe at 127 Orchard St. will evoke the main Russ & Daughters location on Houston Street, complete with a neon sign and a slicing counter, where customers can watch employees fillet their fish.

The fourth-generation family business will serve plates of lox and other smoked fish, and it will also have “an old-school soda fountain” making egg creams, co-owner Niki Russ Federman told The Daily Meal last fall.

In addition, the restaurant will serve salads, cocktails, wines and dessert, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.
