At Russ & Daughters, they’re gearing up for one of the legendary appetizing store’s signature events: New Catch Holland Herring Season. The mild, young herrings are generally eaten whole; you hold them by the tail and drop the little delicacies into your mouth. Every year, Russ & Daughters celebrates the season with a soiree at the Astor Center. See the photo-booth images from previous herring/cocktail shindigs! New catch Holland Herring cost $4.49 each and are available at the counter or via mail order beginning June 5. For more details and to learn more about the June 18th celebration, check out the Russ & Daughters’ blog.
