A kosher bagel shop with locations in Manhattan and on Long Island will open this April.
Bagel Boss will open a store at 69-48 Main Street, the former location of the ice cream and yogurt shop Berrylicious.
Bagel Boss–known best for its bagels, bialys and flagels— also offers omelets, pancakes, sandwiches, and American-style bakery items, such as black and white cookies, muffins, turnovers and danishes.
The shop’s menu will be similar to other Bagel Boss locations, although it will have a larger bakery menu. This location will be operating as a Shomer Shabbos Cholov Yisroel store.
All food will be prepared on premises, and the kosher supervision will be provided by the Vaad Harabonim of Queens. Catering is also available.
The shop will offer 24 to 30 seats, and have Wifi “so the millennials can sit with their laptop and have a coffee,” said owner Adam Rosner, whose family founded the company.
Although WiFi is new, Rosner’s family tradition of bagel making goes back decades. The family hails from Bialystok, Poland, the motherland of the bialy bagel.
“We’re fifth generation bialy and bagel bakers,” said Rosner.
Rosner’s family opened the first bagel Bagel Boss in Plainview in the 1970s. Today, the business boasts 12 locations scattered across Manhattan and Long Island.
