For those craving bagels after a week of matzo, this news might be appealing. The Black Seed bagel shop is set to launch in Little Italy tomorrow morning, just in time for the expiration of Passover. A handwritten sign on the front door of 170 Elizabeth Street announces this to the community.
Black Seed is the new bagel place from Mile End owner Noah Bernamoff and Smile’s Matt Kliegman. It’s a unique update on the classic Jewish food, crossing Montreal style with the hometown flavor (Bernamoff is from Montreal, where poppy seeds are nicknamed “black seeds”). The namesake food is hand-rolled and hand-boiled, then subject to a wood-fired oven. Store hours are from 7am to 4pm, but there are reportedly plans for 24-hour service to meet late-night demand. The latter might have neighbors up in arms, though.
170 Elizabeth was previously the longtime vintage boutique Frock.
