In the News: H&H Bagels in FiDi?

This is actually Zucker’s, but it’s the only bagel photo I have on hand. If you have a problem with that, call 311.

••• “Six months on, two clues suggests that H&H—or perhaps some rebooted form of the iconic NY bagel chain—will open at 125 Fulton Street, in the former site of a Bread Factory Cafe in the financial district. A lease transaction notice logged in the Real Deal notes H&H Bagel signed a lease for 1,800 square feet at 125 Fulton Street, near Nassau Street, and last week, new tenants filed with the DOB to convert the existing retail space into a “new bagel store.” That address was most recently home to a Bread Factory Cafe, and since that chain bakes its breads and bagels on-premise, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched for this address to be the next incarnation of H&H Bagels.” No confirmation yet. —Grub Street

••• “However tired you think you are of reading clumsy descriptive phrases like ‘the pedestrian arcade that runs between Vesey and Murray Streets, alongside the Goldman Sachs building and the Conrad New York Hotel,’ rest assured that we are far wearier of writing them. But there’s good news for both of us: The thoroughfare once known unofficially as ‘Goldman Alley’ has been formally christened ‘North End Way’ by Goldman Sachs, the company that owns the buildings on either side of it. And thus it shall be in the Broadsheet forevermore.” Whose side are you on?!

••• “The owners of affordable American favorite Westville just signed the lease on a new space at 333 Hudson Street, which is the former home of such short-lived projects as Dani, Dog Ear Tavern, and Prime 333 (closed earlier this month).” —Eater

  1. H&H? I hope their everything bagels will really have everything, unlike those salt-less abominations sold by Zuckers.
