Another Midtown Bagel Shop Bites the Dust?
In 2010, Vic’s Bagel Bar was heralded as the Cold Stone Creamery of bagels with its sweet and savory mix-ins, and declared better than Ess A Bagel. But less than three years later, a Midtown Luncher reported that Vic’s appeared to be closed. When we went to check out the scene… the windows had indeed been covered by black trash bags. A delivery truck worker on the scene said he noticed the shop had been closed for at least a week. We were unable to reach the restaurant via phone, and their twitter feed showed little activity for the past few weeks. This is just more bad news for the Midtown bagel scene, coming so soon after the closing of Times Square Hot Bagels. If anyone knows the inside scoop about Vic’s Bagel Bar, please let us know!
