1017 7th Street, NW

At long last!! Pearl’s Bagels is nearly here (on 7th Street across the street from the Convention Center near the original Passenger location.)

From the owners:

“The day has finally come and we’re going to open this Saturday!

For now, we’ll be doing contactless takeout via online pre-order (the day before) only. Once we get a handle on how many bagels to make any given day, we’ll switch to day-of ordering and ramp up to making all the sandwiches we’ve been planning over the past year. We’ll be selling assorted bagels by the half-dozen, tubs of various cream cheeses, plus “Nana’s Hot Jalapeno Spread” — Allee’s (my wife and business partner) grandmother’s specialty that’s similar to pimento cheese, but hotter and better (in our humble opinion).

We’ll also be selling two build-your-own-sandwich kits. The “Lox Box” will feature Ivy City Smokehouse novalox, Little Wild Things microgreens, capers, pickled red onions, a tomato, and cream cheese; and the “BEC Box” which will include Epic Curing bacon, a half-dozen cage-free eggs, sliced cheddar cheese and a little jar of ketchup.
