Incoming Bagel Belly now with Bagel Belly signage
Since the new storefront was unveiled at 114 Third Ave. near East 14th Street ... the Bagel Belly coming soon signage has arrived...
As you can see, the bagels here will be "hand rolled & kettle boiled" ...
No mention of toasted.
The proprietors here also own Namu Deli & Grocery at 252 Third Ave. between 20th Street and 21st Street.
And these two questions came up the last time we mentioned Bagel Belly.
1) Is Tompkins Square Bagels still opening an outpost on Second Avenue?
Yes. Renovations were slowed down by some DOB-mandated modifications. Read more here.
2) Is Black Seed Bagels still open on First Avenue?
Yes. They are open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

This will make 4 bagel places within a 5 block area!! A bonanza of bageleries....
IHTSIB, 'Belly Bagel' has a much better pronunciation feel to it.
Typical food trend, the old bagel get's (discovered) by the foodies and as with fro-yo, nouvelle tacos, etc... there is an explosion of one food product focused businesses everywhere.
Looks like Tompkins on 2nd is getting closer to being a go. Lot of work going on there today at 8 am as I walked past.
Re: Black Seed Bagels
I've been there a few times, but always for take-out bagels, because the place gets crowded and the music is too LOUD.
The bagels, however, are excellent. And so is the tofu vegan cream cheese spread, believe it or not. Staff were friendly too. So I will support Black Seed.
Not sure I will support Bagel Belly, though, because I would rather not develop a...bagel belly.

I feel like there is a glut of bagels all of a sudden. Coincidentally it's getting harder to find a regular old bacon egg and cheese type sandwich.
Robin Raj used to sell us a sausage, egg and cheese bagel for $3.50-4, depending on the day. I'm sure Bagel Belly will ask for twice that.
Not entirely their fault, Robin Raj couldn't afford the new rent with $3.50 sausage, egg and cheese sammiches either...
Maybe the opening will coincide when Belly stops in NYC on August 11 at Bowery Ballroom for their reunion tour. So take your hat off boy
when you're talking to me, and be there when I feed the tree.
Bagels are the new bongs!
I agree the music at Black Seed is sooo loud. I think it must be one of these marketing things because lot a places do that. Loud pop music is hip just like the bagels. They do it with the open facades too, like at Tompkins Square Bagels where millenials spill out on the sidewalk. Yay hooray-bunch of idiots.
Speaking of baked goods, a new bakery will replace the tattoo parlor soon at 72 E. 7th St.
No toast? Give up the ghost.
@11:27am: For that, try Heavenly Market at the corner of 12th St. & 3rd Ave.
This name is yuck
Neptune makes a fine bacon, egg and cheese on buttered roll, as does Little Poland.
I prefer Borscht Belly,
Corned Beef Balls
Egg Cream C---
Hot Dog Dildoes
and (what the hell)
Guessing the BB owners have no idea what they're doing. Their deli is no great shakes and bagels are an entirely different ball game. BB owner spotted past two weeks sitting in BS and TSB with a notebook. Korean dude. Just sits and watches. Sometimes comes with his chef. I know this because I saw owner of one of said shops bitching to his manager about it while I ate lunch. Guy was not happy. Then saw same guys again in the other shop. Anyway , if that's the extent of BB s bagel knowledge , I'd imagine they will be ill-prepared. Let the bagel wars begin.
Joe Junior's (3rd Ave and 16th) has the best bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches. Mmmm.
I am waiting for the bagel bubble to burst.
If it's going to be like any of the ones on First Ave. I will probably like it. My favorite is Davids. Any one of those is good and comfortable to sit. I don't like to sit or stand with the crowd at Tompkins Square bagels.
The only bagel that matters is H&H Bagels.
How sad that a neighborhood which once had at least five record stores at one point now has five bagel shops.
RIP East Village.
The more bagel shops the better just as long as they are a real bagel shop. I'm for classic bagel and pizza shops.
St Marks Market makes the best bacon, egg and cheese. I get them on an Everything bagel. To die for.
