This answer is not smart or revelatory -- just the obvious. RUSS & DAUGHTERS. Why go anywhere else? Their smoked white fish salad would be delicious schmeared on the sidewalk, let alone on a bialy with capers, onion and a squeeze of lime. If the line stresses you out, take a number and head around the corner to eat the halvah ice cream at the cafe with a shot of vodka. It's the holidays, after all.
When life gives you limes, just add tequila
LOL @ the visual of eating smoked white fish salad pancaked to the sidewalk!

Hahaha great writeup! I love to eat at Katz and follow it up by picking up some goods at R & D after!

The freshly sliced King Salmon at Dean & Deluca is better than any other in the city. Its definitely a hidden secret, so I don't let the word out. Russ & Daughters is excellent, but the buttery texture and flavoring of this baby is much better.
