Dessert isn't typically the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Russ & Daughters, but don't pass them up on your next smoked fish run. From Dark Chocolate Dipped Halvah to Raspberry Rugelach and Bagel Pudding, you can hardly do wrong in the sweets section here. But I'm particularly fond of their housemade Rice Pudding ($4.99/pound). Thick, lightly sweetened, cinnamon-speckled with a high rice-to-pudding ratio. The short grain rice is cooked just al dente, perhaps more toothsome than most are used to, but delicious nonetheless.
