Venue Info

After Ess-a-Bagel's original location in Stuy Town shut down in 2015, fans were forced to trek to its outpost in the corporate jungle of Midtown East. A year-and-a-half later, it came back to its home turf on First Ave with a storefront a few doors down from the original. Ess-a-Bagel 2.0 still serves its beloved hand-rolled bagels, extensive selection of cream cheese spreads, and add-ons like egg, whitefish, bacon, and lox, but in a departure from the original policy, they'll toast your bagel should you so please (though, it really doesn't need it).
