The Brooklyn Bagel Blog was born out of an epiphany: I’ve loved bagels my whole life, and bagels are a quintessential emblem of New York City itself. The city has annual festivals celebrating anything imaginable. And yet, I was stunned to learn that a Bagel-themed food festival had never taken place in NYC.
I knew in that moment of realization that a New York City BagelFest needed to exist - and I would be the one to make it happen. Thus was born the Brooklyn Bagel Blog. The Bagel Blog chronicles the journey of my alter ego, The Bagel Borg, on a mission to review and curate the world's best Bagels for the annual Brooklyn BagelFest, the first of which took place in September of 2019.
