Russ & Daughters is no longer taking pre-orders for Yom Kippur appetizing, so if you’re aiming to break the fast with babka, you’re going to have to hoof it down to Houston. Just one thing: the line for lox is long. Very long. A tipster tells us the person in front of her told her the wait was four hours long, and 114 people took tickets before she took off. When we called to confirm, the following exchanged occurred.
B+B: How long’s the wait there right now?
Russ: Uh, long.
B+B: No exact estimate?
Russ: At least an hour, but I really can’t say.
So, unless you really have a hard-on for chub, avoid.
