What happened to East River Bread and their lovely bagels?

At last year's Smorgasburg there was a purveyor of delicious bagels and cream cheese called East River Bread. They received a ton of hype, and in my opinion deservedly so -- these were old school style bagels made with high quality ingredients. (Think Bagel Hole, but more better.)

And then ... gone. Stopped attending Smorgasburg, cut back on press, and by November stopped updating social media.

Does anyone have news about them -- are they still around, are they going to be attending any of the food fairs this season, anything?

      Wow, thanks! Hopefully they'll do takeaway (and won't compete pricewise with Barney Greengrass).
