Chag Sameach! We’re so excited to celebrate our first Passover in our new shop. Before I get into the details of all of the Passover food we are making, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support. We just celebrated our 6 month anniversary on the 26th and what a wild 6 months it has been! In a way, it seems to have flown by, but in another way, it feels like we’ve been doing this forever. Funny how that happens. It has been bumpy and overwhelming and frustrating, but we have finally found our groove and hit our stride and learned how to operate a bagel shop, which let me assure you, is a lot harder than it sounds!

I can’t say I was prepared for the harsh criticisms and backlash that followed our opening, but I have learned how to focus on the positive (all of our lovely customers!) and downplay the negative (nasty Yelp reviews) in order to maintain my sanity. So what I’m really trying to say is, a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have been so supportive and encouraging during this process. We appreciate it more than you’ll probably ever realize. I’m sorry this is always a forum for me to be so sappy, I just have so much love and gratitude in my heart for all of you, and it spills out when I start to write these.

Quick, back to Passover! We will finally be using our giant wood-fired oven for more than just bagels and will be preparing lots and lots of handmade matzoh! It’s amazing what adding a little olive oil and sea salt can do. While it’s not kosher, it is delicious and the perfect centerpiece for a Seder. Blake will be making lots of other Passover favorites as well, including gefilte fish, charoset, chrain, macaroons, chopped liver, and, of course, matzoh ball soup. We will be serving all of these items in the shop from Tuesday the 26th through Sunday the 31st. For those who are interested in catering, we will have pickup available on Sunday the 24th all day and Monday the 25th from 11-1. We ask that all catering orders be placed by 5:00 on Thursday 21st so we have time to prepare all of this delicious food. There are a few ways to go about placing your order: you can e-mail info@beautysbagelshop.com, call the shop and ask for Amy (preferably in the afternoon) or stop by the shop and fill out a catering form.

We would love to hear your feedback about catering. Is there something you want that we didn’t offer? We are working on the catering menu for bagels as well, so if you know of anyone who needs a bris or a baby shower or special occasion catered, we’d appreciate a nod in our direction!
