Black Seed Bagels will Reopen on Elizabeth Street Next Month
One month after an early-morning fire ripped through the original Black Seed Bagels in Little Italy, the business is on the mend. And might reopen sooner than initially expected.
As in next month.
On March 7, a fire sparked on-premise and knocked out the whole bagel operation. Firefighters were successful in extinguishing the blaze and containing the damage. No one was hurt; only the business itself.
However, Black Seed is taking it in stride.
“The nightmare of insurance haggling is complete,” ownership quipped in a recent email. “Mid- to end of May is our current target [to reopen].”
Black Seed opened this OG shop exactly five years ago, almost to the day.
