Streetlevel: Bagels at Prospect and Vandy?

645-Vanderbilt.jpg
There’s a work permit on the gate of the space on the corner of Prospect and Vanderbilt, and it looks like a new restaurant will be moving in. According to the chatter on the Brooklynian boards, “The word on the street is that it will be a bagel place from the owners of Zaytoons.” We’re wondering if this Middle Eastern mini chain will be opening a basic bagel-and-cream-cheese joint — or if they’d be offering their savory spreads, like Turkish salad and hummus, on bagels, too.

  • hummus does not belong on a bagel. but if they sold za’atar bagels, well, that cross-breed works.

  • “Vandy”. I like that.

    Much needed.

  • Love Zaytoon’s. Gotta wonder if their magic crosses over to bagels though.

  • Please, people, stop referring to Vanderbilt as “Vandy”.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    The Management

  • Vanderbilt always sounds a bit too proper/ formal– I like “Vandy” on occasion. Besides, Vanderbilt University has been using this nickname for a long long time, why can’t the Brooklyn Avenue?
