In one corner is Black Seed Bagels, a Montreal-Manhattan hybrid that commits the minor sin of putting honey in the dough and in the water in which the bagels are boiled, then baking these large-holed, slightly flattened rings in a wood-fired oven, like they do up north. The third (and largest) branch of this growing concern has annexed the East Village’s historic De Robertis bakery, preserving that relic’s original penny-tile floor and tin ceiling while augmenting its own repertoire with more salads, more hot bagel sandwiches, and more pastries, from rugalach to rainbow cookies, in honor of its predecessor.
