The bagel is the morning ritual of the Big Apple. Perhaps you’re sitting in a deli on the corner of Bedford Avenue with coffee brewing and bagels baking, or you’re rushing down into the subway, bagel in hand. Brooklyn Hide is replicating at least a slice of that New York experience with the most authentic bagels this side of the Pacific.
Founded by Daniel Littlepage and Matthew Forsdike, Brooklyn Hide is an amalgamation of Littlepage’s business background, Forsdike’s experience as a chef and their shared love of New York City.
Boiled and not baked, Brooklyn Hide’s extensive menu – which is dedicated solely to bagels – covers every borough of NYC. Named after the city’s neighbourhoods, your tastebuds can travel to Chinatown (blue swimmer crab remoulade, herds, chilli and garlic), Hell’s Kitchen (avocado, prosciutto, salad and lime) or Midtown (corned beef, Jarlsberg, sauerkraut and mustard).
For dessert, there is the Upper East, with house-made lemon cream cheese, blueberry jam and fresh strawberries. Vegetarian options also feature on the menu, as well as a gluten-free alternative.
And as no bagel bar is complete without coffee brewing, Little Marionette has created a signature blend specifically to complement Brooklyn Hide’s bagel-centric menu.
Although the Commonwealth Street store has only opened this week, the boys already have plans to expand throughout Sydney and bring the iconic roll-with-a-hole to the masses.
