On Wednesday, I went to an event at Zucker’s Bagels and Smoked Fish near Grand Central Terminal in Midtown East. This recently opened, cozy spot offers authentic hand-rolled, kettle-boiled bagels made on-site and much more—including a wide assortment of pastries, coffee from popular roasting company La Colombe, authentic seltzers, daily shipments of smoked fish, and deli sandwiches—all from New York vendors. I tried a refreshing ginger seltzer and a flavorful pastrami reuben, and definitely recommend both. The space is brightly lit and the décor is a cohesive mix of modern design with Old New York touches, including an LCD menu board, which on first glance looks like an old-fashioned chalkboard. This is the perfect spot to grab a quick bite after touring the many attractions in the area, including Grand Central and the United Nations. Make sure to also stop by Zucker’s first location in Tribeca. For more information, click here.
