Sad to see this place close up after such a short time.
Another business that had Henkins as a landlord, has fallen, like so many others.
When will people learn that you DONT RENT FROM JOHN HENKINS!!He only cares about lining his pockets and has no interest in any providence of small business owners or the general well- being of Huntington. Dont believe me? Just look at the north side of 4th ave between 9th and 10th street. Disgraceful! Greed is the true mark of those controlled by fear of their own mentality. Hey ASSHOLE- dont you know you actually never own ANYTHING? Its ALL just borrowed, then transfered or discarded.
Have a nice afterlife in hell buddy. What a legacy you leave to your loser kids and Huntington.

This was the ONLY place to get an authentic bagel in the region.
They only used Boar's Head meats and cheeses, which if Huntington residents had any ability to recognize good food, would have realized this and patronized this lovely eatery.
I ate there 4-5 times a week and never had a bad meal there.

You could buy meats and cheeses there CHEAPER than Kroger "Select" brand. Hmmm, better product for less price. What a concept! It was also one of the few places you could get a GOOD breakfast, and served Sunday brunch. Omelets were superior and cheaper than Flapjacks. Bob Evans doesnt make omelets- they mix everything together and then lump it together to resemble the form of an omelet- not the same thing!

Alas, another one bites the dust.

You guys are only proving my point that you, as well as most Huntington residents, don't know anything about food.
The location was great- right in the middle of everything.
The most expensive bagel on the menu had Nova Scotia lox ( smoked salmon- that's a fish to you hillbillies) tomato, capers, onion, cream cheese, served with bagel chips, all for $6.50. Cheaper and far superior than the similar offering at the highly overrated 3rd Avenue Deli, which doesn't even offer real bagels.
But go ahead, eat the crap you are accustomed to...

You're right. It was just too high end for us simpletons to understand and appreciate. That was the problem. Not that literally every person who has gone there including myself was disappointed. I need to go get a mcChicken now.

I was not overly impressed with the food. I had fairly high hopes for their success as I had often heard of how great "New York" bagels were and the rest are just simply bread. Frankly, I cannot tell the difference. Perhaps my palate is not as sophisticated as NYers but the bagels were ok but truly nothing special.

Sorry to see them leave. Another Hankins casualty. Do many businesses survive Hankins?

Is the landlord not supposed to collect rent? What are your expectations regarding what the landlord should have done to help keep the business afloat?

Just to make sure I understand this correctly. You open a business not fully understanding your target market in a bad location. Then when your business venture fails it is the fault of the people who just couldn't understand that the chit they were eating was REALLY good even if it was over priced and not what they wanted? And its the fault of the land lord for collecting rent? Please let me know if I am missing something here.

I think the food there is amazing. You can get large portions for a low price. Why wouldn't you choose a big turkey sandwich with bagel chips over a nasty greasy burger and fries for practically the same price?! I think the location might have been a bit big for them, but I hate to see them go.

Hey, we fell for starbucks $4 coffee, I guess not for the overpriced bagel. I've had NY bagels while in NY and they are good and expensive. My guess is if you open a business and close it within one year, you probably didn't have a good business plan or enough capital from the start.

the bagels at NY bagel are all under a dollar, and cheaper the more you buy.
They cost more at 3rd ave deli and are NOT even real bagels. If you like 3rd ave deli bagels more then you dont know what a real bagel is.

A three egg REAL omelet loaded with meats and cheeses was 4.95, cheaper than any place I know ( although I have never eaten in a waffle iron)

All of the Boars Head deli foods average about $2 cheaper per pound than the best deli products you get from Kroger's and are vastly superior.

their coffee is excellent and vastly cheaper than Starbucks

So the argument here that NY Bagel is expensive is complete rubbish
3rd Ave deli isnt a deli at all as the name implies and they sell $10 pints of ice cream, and $5 crappy cupcakes. But hey, if thats your thing....

I agree that their choice of space could have been better,although it was still set up for Quiznos and they incurred very little renovation costs. But it was too big for their needs as they never utilized the upstairs space.

Hankins ( thank you poster for the spell correction) charged them $2,000 for the wall mureau they never asked for and would not repair the plumbing problems that were existent when they opened.
That along with a rental rate thats more in line with Columbus than Huntington, and they already had one foot in the grave. I'd bet money that Hankin's will re-open it.

In hindsight, they should have taken the space which is now Paula's Cupcakes.

Bottom line is that NY Bagel wasn't good. I gave it several tries and was disappointed every time. I won't miss your place at all. What I missed was the flavor in your product.
