Check out this time lapse video shot at the rebooted Kossar’s Bialys on Grand Street. The short forty-second clip- dubbed “A Schmear My Dear”-is a behind the scenes look into the on-site bialy making. It was shot by John Cafaro and produced by Boogie contributor Jolie Warbet as part of a new venture called “the forty,” which creates quick hits for restaurants, bars, and the like.
Bialys have been getting a lot of media coverage lately, but usually you just run in and out of the store to grab a dozen without paying much attention to all of the beautiful old machinery and the 3 hour start to finish process.
Kossar’s Bialys, a spartan warehouse of sorts at 367 Grand, is now under the tutelage of partners Marc Halprin, Evan Giniger and David Zablocki. They purchased the Lower East Side icon last fall and are bringing the bakery into the next generation with better quality product and even breaking tradition with Saturday hours. They are the third set of proprietors to operate the bakery since its inception in 1936.
