It’s Official: Times Square Hot Bagels Has Closed

A couple of weeks ago we found out the sad news that Times Square would be losing its bagel haven only bagel spot, Times Square Hot Bagels. I’ve been out of the country for the past couple of weeks but returned to Midtown to see that the inevitable occurred in my absence. Times Square Hot Bagels has closed. This is so very sad, as there aren’t any other bagel-specific shops in the area. See the note posted on the door from the manager after the jump.


  • My personal favorites for bagels in midtown:
    ESS-A-BAGEL- 51/3rd
    BLUE FLOWERS- 47/5th and Madison (go to the BACK of the store)
    …and a surprising one
    BLAKE AND TODD- Vanderbilt/44th; 47/5th and 6th; 53/Park and Madison.

  • I second Ess-A-Bagel. They’re much more appealing now since they got rid of that obnoxious counter man Bill.

    Zaro’s at Grand Central is pretty good (also Penn Station and 37th St near 7th Ave apparently). I’ll have to try some of the above suggestions though.
