Do you know the difference between a delicatessen and an appetizing shop?

No? Well, today’s stealth lawyer can tell you all about it. He’s a Georgetown Law grad who walked away from litigating to take over the family business, founded by his grandfather, and in the process kept a Lower East Side mainstay successfully rolling into the next generation….

Mark Russ Federman grew up working the candy counter at the legendary Russ & Daughters appetizing shop before traipsing off to Georgetown Law. After practicing as a litigator for a number of years, Russ returned to his family’s shop and… never really left.

But the question remains for many of you: what is an appetizing shop? Well, I’ll leave that to the stealth lawyer himself in this interview with Spencer Mazyck of Bloomberg Law:

Now, Mark Russ Federman has released a new book, Russ & Daughters: Reflections and Recipes from the House That Herring Built (affiliate link), telling his family’s story.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, Russ & Daughters is a little less than half a mile from the Above the Law offices and I need to grab lunch.
