The Baz Bagel
Our bagel is so special because we practice traditional New York bagel techniques and use premium ingredients specialized for bagel-making. No short-cuts.
First, our bagels are hand-rolled in small batches every day and left to rest, slowly fermenting overnight. Then, the bagels are boiled in a kettle and set on burlap-covered boards to be seeded before baking. Finally, the bagels are baked on the burlap boards in a rotating oven to achieve the best tasting, freshest bagel in the City.
Our bagels are schmeared with fresh whipped cream cheese made in house daily and flavored with our classic and seasonal ingredients. We are proud to carry the best local smoked fish from our over-100 year-old neighbors at Acme Smoked Fish in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Baz is more than bagels. Our menu also includes soda fountain favorites, diner classics and home-style Jewish fare. Knowing that certain dishes in Jewish cuisine are untouchable, we have made sure to keep some recipes exactly as we have all grown up loving them. Our famous latkes, kasha varnishkes, and chicken soup come straight from the recipe cards of Bari's grandmothers and great-grandmothers (written just down the street in the Lower East Side.)
Other Baz classics have gotten a revamp to be in-line with modern tastes, ingredients and preferences. Our house-cured gravlax made with our own special blend of dill and spices, Latkes Deluxe topped with smoked salmon & sour cream, and our Baz Original bagel sandwiches are modern creations rooted in traditional ingredients.
From our comforting menu to our invitingly fun décor, Baz is a restaurant for friends of all ages to call their neighborhood café.
