Zucker’s Bagels and Smoked Fish is New York City’s quintessential neighborhood bagel shop, founded in TriBeCa in 2006. We make bagels the old-fashioned way: hand-rolled and kettle-boiled, using only unbromated and unbleached flours and a touch of malt syrup. Our New York bagels have a golden brown exterior, a dense chewy interior, and are generously seeded on both sides (no skimping!). By partnering with the country’s most respected makers including Acme Smoked Fish, La Colombe Coffee, Guss’ Pickles and others, we create the city’s most delicious bagel sandwiches. We cater and deliver throughout Manhattan, and ship our bagels & brunch kits nationwide via Goldbelly.
Matt Pomerantz is a native New Yorker who knows New York – his parents Roslyn Marilyn Zucker Pomerantz and Murray Pomerantz owned a well-known ladies clothing business on Rivington Street in the Lower East Side for over 35 years, and Matt’s formative years were spent at NY’s well-known eateries like Schmulka Bernstein and Ratner’s and bussing tables in the Catskills. Zucker’s is named after Matt’s mother.
Matt’s and his longtime friend and business partner Dan Pace pursue a love of bagels and great food at Zucker’s. Matt and Dan are committed to running a company that supports team members and customers as well as the environment and our hometown. Zucker’s sustainability practices include sourcing locally whenever possible, using environmentally-friendly packaging materials, using LED lighting and non-toxic cleaning supplies, and delivering food by bicycle.
Zucker’s is invested in our community and has supported a number of schools, sports teams and organizations since we started. The plight of hungry and homeless New Yorkers moves us, and we are proud to partner with The Bowery Mission, which provides homeless and hungry New Yorkers with meals and services to help transform their lives from poverty and hopelessless to HOPE. Zucker’s donates 500 bagels breakfasts on a daily basis to The Bowery Mission, totaling approximately 180,000 meals per year. We hope you’ll learn more by visiting bowery.org.
