Black Seed Bagels in the East Village

Black Seed Bagels in the East Village just recently opened in the old DeRobertis Pasticceria ‪#‎storefront‬. Black Seed specializes in an atypical ‪#‎bagel‬ for New York in that it "unites a love of traditional bagel baking with artisanal ingredients, combining the best of Montreal and New York styles". The ‪#‎bagels‬ are rolled by hand and boiled in honey water and then baked in a wood-fired oven for crispness. After the bagels are lightly browned they are tossed into a marble chute for cooling using hand-carved walnut peels. We are happy that these owners preserved much of the DeRobertis old shop including its wonderful ‪#‎vintage‬ ‪#‎neonsign‬ and the store's original tiled floor, mirrored back wall and tin ceiling. Although we morn the loss of DeRobertis Pasticceria which was in business from 1904-2014, we are happy that a ‪#‎momandpop‬ establishment had taken its space and lovingly renovated it.
