New Old-School Eatery Opens at Museum of Jewish Heritage

Perhaps taking a page from the Jewish Museum, which now houses a branch of Russ & Daughters, the Museum of Jewish Heritage has unveiled , a decidedly old-school eatery with an almost nostalgic menu of Ashkenazi favorites.

As the name hints, smoked fish is the star here. It’s also where Lox cuts loose. Chef David Teyf, who operates the space, is offering up house-cured salmon pastrami-style with a house spice blend; wasabi, ginger, sake and soy infused; and double-smoked, with more creative varieties planned.

Cheese blintzes, schmaltz herring, “Grandma’s tuna salad” on black bread, “Minsk Matzo babka” and Russian coffee cake are highlights; there’s also a “Jewish bento” of three herrings with potatoes, country salad and borscht, and a challah-and-caviar sandwich with butter.
