Russ & Daughters welcomes the prized New Catch Holland Herring on June 9. After you’ve tried the New Catch at the counter, join us at the Roger Smith Hotel for A Festival of Herring & Aquavit.
This year, to celebrate the New Catch, the annual Scandinavian Mid-Summer Celebration, and the wonders of herring in general, Russ & Daughters and chef Ulrika Bengtsson will host a one-night celebration in the newly renovated penthouse of the Roger Smith Hotel. There, Russ & Daughters and Bengtsson will showcase a tasting of herrings from around the world and accompanying infused aquavits in an evening perfect for aficionados and for newcomers alike.
At A Festival of Herring & Aquavit, guests will sample many different types of herring, including; Herring with Mustard & Dill, Curried Herring, Gubbora, Warm Jansson’s Temptation, and the seasonal New Catch Holland Herring. Guests will dine on an additional smorgasbord of treats such as crispbread, fine cheeses, and potato and beet salads. An array of specialty infused aquavits such as elderberry, lingonberry and ginger, will accompany the feast.
Tickets are $30 and must be reserved by calling 212.475.4880 or e-mailing info(@)russanddaughters.com.
