In November, jenjfen posted news that the beloved Vic’s Bagel Bar (3rd between 36th and 37th) had closed. As reported by a Midtown Luncher, the black trash bags that used to cover the windows have been replaced by paper from Bagel Boss Cafe. Bagel Boss Cafe has another location on 1st ave, down by Stuyvesant Town, that tends to get pretty packed in the mornings. They may not have the fancy mix-ins or smoked meat that Vic’s was known for, but I’m happy to see that there will be no shortage of bagels in the neighborhood. Vic’s is a tough act to follow, but Bagel Boss has been around a while and I imagine they know what they’re doing.
