Whoa this could be awesome – Simit + Smith’s website says:

“Simit is a traditional bread eaten throughout the Balkans and Mediterranean for breakfast and as a snack during the day. Often called a “Turkish Bagel,” Simit are actually softer and lighter on the inside and crunchier on the outside than a bagel.

Enjoying a warm, freshly baked Simit from the Simitçi (street simit vendors) of Istanbul is an unmatched pleasure. We believe the love of healthy, crispy and delicious Simit is deserved to be shared with today’s global citizens, who are looking to touch roots with healthy, natural, locally prepared foods. At our cafés we serve our Simit on their own, with dips, along salads or made into sandwiches.

Each SIMIT + SMITH Simit is hand-rolled by Artisans at our local factory and always freshly baked with no preservatives. We have three varieties: original with sesame, whole wheat with sesame, and multigrain. We also offer a variety of other regional pastries known as poğaça (pronounced po-acha) and treats.”

Check out their menu here.

Opening in 2016 – stay tuned.

  • this is fantastic! my husband and I were just discussing how much we missed simit.

  • I tasted their simits at the Turkish Day in Freedom Plaza last month. They are really delicious!

    I am so excited for this. i work across the canal and will definitely try them out once they open!

  • A slab of yeni kasar cheese sandwiched in a fresh, warm simit, and a glass of hot tea – one of the great pleasures in life. And poğaça kept me alive when I lived in Istanbul. I am VERY excited!! Can’t wait till they’re open!!
