Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. coming to Beverly Hills

Mr Taster Aug 11, 2010 10:53 AM

There's something awfully fishy about a Florida-based bagel company advertising bagels made from "Brooklynized" water.

In addition, the logo for the company is:

Water Bagel Co.


Bagel Co.

Calling your plain bagels "water bagels" is an immediate sign that you're not from the Tri State area.

(Who had a Sam's Larchmont bagel for breakfast today and was very happy with it)

P.S. Finally tried the Brooklyn Bagel Bakery "hearth baked" New York bagel. Meh. Better than their other sub-par offerings, but they were small and neither chewy nor crispy enough.

    Isn't this the store that Larry King part-owns? If it is I swear he said on air that it was authentic NY tap water bagels.

      This isn't a pre-judgement on the food, just a comment on Larry King--he's full of it, generally. He announced he was "retiring" after CNN already announced they were replacing him. I won't take his word for it, and wait till the place opens . . . Yeah Noah's isn't for bagel lovers--there's is more plain bread than bagel.

      Noah's makes the best bagel; thick and puffy with almost no hole for toppings to fall out

        That's not a bagel that's hamburger bun with a hole missing!

          Noah's bagels are frozen and brought back to life at the stores.

          Keep an open mind . . . taste the bagels and then make a judgement, Mr. Taster.

            I'll try and do that, but my expectations are very low.

              I'm with you... but bear in mind that the good thing about low expectations is that they sometimes lead to pleasant surprises

              (Is that open minded enough, apple7blue?) :)

                Its open minded enough for me if you tell me if it sucks or is great after you've tasted them.
