The counter in front gave me hope that they would open soon, but now I don't think they will... oh well

I have seen people inside recently, look like workers being trained. So maybe, just maybe...

I saw that they now have menus on the wall that look like tv screens and they put a concrete ramp at the door so it looks like they really will be opening soon.

I saw actual people and actual food inside this morning.  It's Open!  It's Open!  Our long national nightmare is over.

Good luck to them!

One bad review on Yelp because they don't have free wifi or something and it's closed in 3 months.

Spoke to the owner. Soft open is this week, full grand opening starts monday.  They have lots of wraps, sandwiches, and will have a small steam table area as well. 


The long delay was due to issues with Con Ed.

Seems like ConEd is a serious problem. Does anyone know why this seems to be an overwhelming issue with local business owners?

Wonder if it was a leftover from that fire several years ago? Hidden damage or something?

This place has finally opened!  I bought a whole wheat bagel with lox spread, and it was pretty good.  I haven't yet seen crowds of customers, though, just one or two at a time.

Do they have a seating area there?

My wife went in the other day- Said it wasn't too bad, but it was a bit slow, even with not that many people in there. If they hope to do a good commuter trade, she hopes they get a faster system in place. IF it's going to take too long when people are heading to the train, they'll stop going.

No seating, just a grab and go.


Awkward layout, but nice folks.

I agree with you about the awkward layout. They put in a counter in the front that is so high it comes up to your chin.  Either they have to lower the counter or have higher chairs.  I really think they should have made room for some tables and chairs.  I dont want to go there if there isn't anywhere comfortable to sit.  Astoria Bagels has plenty of tables and chairs.
