Barney Greengrass - The Sturgeon King

Barney Greengrass - The Sturgeon King is a third generation family-owned business, which specializes in smoked fish such as sturgeon, 🐟salmon, and lox as well as caviar. They also have a restaurant serving all of their smoked fish, pickled items, salads, and fresh bagels and breads. Barney Greengrass founded the store in 1908. If you would like to visit this shop in the next few days, be prepared for a long wait as their busiest time of year is around the holiday of Yom Kippur (which is on September 19th this year). When we spoke with the third-generation owner, Gary for our book “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York” he told us that right before Yom Kippur “it’s like a war room in here”.
