Opening In the Works for Goldberg's Famous Bagels
If you've driven past the Katonah Avenue shopping plaza anytime recently, you've probably noticed a large "coming soon" sign hanging in the window of the space that once housed The Bagel Shoppe.
The business closed in November. Now, Ron Koff, a Briarcliff Manor resident, says he plans to open another eatery in its place. Goldberg's Famous Bagels could be open by mid-March, he told Patch.
The establishment, which is part of a chain of bagel shops, will serve breakfast and lunch. Catering will be available, too.
"We're very excited," Koff said, adding that he foresees both a soft and grand opening.
There may be some open positions when the shop, located at 280 Katonah Avenue, opens.
Sinapi's Adds Wood-Fired Pizza Oven
Folks who love the food at this Bedford Hills pizzeria will be happy to know that several new items are now available, thanks to the specialty oven. Here is what owner Angelo Sinapi had to say about the addition:
"We are always trying to make our customers feel very welcomed and offering new things to them. We added the wood-fired oven to our store the last week of December. We wanted to offer our customers something new and authentic. I've incorporated so much of my family's history into the pizzeria that I felt putting a wood-fired oven would enhance that feel and make our customers feel like they are sitting in a typical pizzeria in Italy. Throughout the years I've traveled all over Italy and have eaten my fair share of pizza and, in my opinion, Naples has the best pizza! I have eaten at two of the oldest pizzerias in Naples, Da'Michele and Sorbillo. I was introduced to Gino Sorbillo through a friend of mine and was [so] impressed with his style of pizza that I wanted to bring a little bit of Naples to Bedford Hills. Since pizza originated in Naples using a wood-fired oven, I wanted to bring that style of pizza here; small mini pizzas with the typical toppings offered in Naples."
Check the restaurant's menu for details on the 15 new pizza pies. Toppings include everything from sauteed clams to zucchini and onions to plum tomatoes, artichokes, and kalamata olives. Sinapi's is located at 5 Norm Avenue.
