Baz Bagel and Restaurant is a neighborhood bagel shop and lunch counter located on historic Grand Street in New York by Bari Musacchio. Bari worked as GM of Rubirosa Ristorante for over 13 years before deciding to launch her own venture with her girlfriend, Saralyn Feinberg. Baz was inspired by their 1/2 Jewish and 1/2 Italian family rooted in the the traditionally Jewish neighborhoods of LES and Italian Little Italy. Their bagels are hand-rolled, kettle boiled and baked in house using the traditional NYC method. In addition to their popular bagels, Baz offers a wide array of smoked fish, spreads and Jewish-ish diner fare like latkes, matzoh ball soup, blintzes and more.
