Burned Out Black Seed Bagels Returns to Elizabeth Street on Thursday
Black Seed Bagels is finally ready to reopen its five-year-old flagship Elizabeth Street shop. The return comes five months after an early-morning fire tore through the establishment.
The bagel outpost will resume hours at 170 Elizabeth on Thursday morning at 7am.
On March 7, a fire sparked on-premise and knocked out the whole bagel operation. Firefighters were successful in extinguishing the blaze and containing the damage. No one was hurt; only the business itself.
The silver lining is that the fire led the team to retool the space including new seating and updating the counter ordering area.
Black Seed opened in 2014, and quickly expanded to include five other area locations.
