H & H Bagels is Closing: Upper West Side Loses Neighborhood Icon

H & H Bagels is closing.  What’s next?  Zabar’s?  But fret not, dear readers. The Upper West Side is now are home to the same chain and big box stores, from the Gap to CVS, that the rest of America enjoys. What will go into the H & H Bagels space? I shudder to think of the possibilities. For continuing coverage of the H & H story, visit the West Side Rag.

H & H Bagels Closed Briefly on Friday

Oy!  There was much bigger hole than any  that was ever punched in a bagel when the much-loved H & H Bagels at Broadway and 80th Street istock_bagel_smallwas briefly shuttered Friday for non-payment of taxes, according to a story in The New York Times.

Taxes, schmaxes!  We need our neighborhood bagel shop!

New York Pastry Shop on Upper East Side May Close

best-payard

According to a report in Crain’s New York Business, Payard Patisserie & Bistro, the famed New York City Upper East Side pastry shop, could close as soon as August.  The landlord is threatening to double the rent, Crain’s reports.

Situated on Lexington Avenue between 73rd and 74th streets, the pastry shop was opened by chef Francois Payard a dozen years ago.

Payard says he’s hunting for another location in the city.

Meanwhile, should the landlord prevail, who knows what will replace the tarts and puff pastry that now grace the space occupied by Payard.  Maybe tooth brushes and dish detergent from Duane Reade?  Or coffee and pre-packaged sandwiches from Starbucks?  Or maybe even your favorite cell phone store….

Ain’t progress wonderful!
