Zucker’s Bagels Coming to Grand Central

Ess-a-Bagel is about to get a run for their money. According to Eater, Zucker’s Bagels & Smoked Fish will be opening a new location on Lexington and 42nd Street. Their downtown location on Chambers Street is a favorite neighborhood spot and I can vouch for their hand-rolled baked on premises bagels. They’re mighty good and come from the same owner as Murray’s. No word on when they’ll be opening yet, but they will be serving their sandwiches along with La Colombe coffee.

  • I don’t think Ess-a-Bagel has anything to worry about.
    They were the pioneers of hand-rolled, kettle boiled
    bagels in Manhattan and have been around forever. I think the original owner is still in the 3rd Ave store
    every day (the Jewish lady with all the paperwork and store telephone on her table) I’m going to have Nova Scotia lox and plain cream cheese on a scooped out plain Bagel, untoasted, for dinner today- real New Yorkers never ask for their Bagels toasted!
