The 45-year-old bakery, which is Houston Kashruth (HKA)- and Mehadrin Kashrus of Texas (MKT)-certified, marks a milestone in its yearlong expansion process alongside the New York Deli & Coffee Shop, which is also slated to open in an expanded dining room next door in 2021.
The new bakery location will allow for counter service and patio seating. Along with its staple bakery offerings, the menu includes new items, such as a falafel burger, the Elvis Schmelvish bagel sandwich and deep-fried blintzes. Food Network veteran Roshni Gurnani is serving as executive chef, and chef Adriana Soto is serving as kitchen supervisor.
The bagel bakery and the deli will also continue to operate in their original Meyerland location at 9720 Hillcroft St., Houston.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and “Challah Day” is scheduled for Jan. 22. www.nybagelsandcoffee.com
