On the topic of bagels... we happened to walk by the incoming Ess-A-Bagel at 324-326 First Ave. at East 19th Street on Saturday. No sign of bagel life here just yet on the east side of the Avenue in the Shoppes of Stuy Town. The coming soon sign arrived last Oct. 22.
Last we read, at the Town & Village Blog, the new location would be open last month. This, according to one of the owners, Muriel Frost, who said that things were proceeding at the new space, despite having to wait for some permits and other paperwork issues.
We also heard from a well-placed tipster that Ess-A-Bagel will be opening a location in the Wall Street area.
THIS is happening at the Third Avenue Ess-A-Bagel in Midtown East this week...
