Rosenberg's Bagels & Deli was closed by a fire above its Five Points shop more than a week ago — a traumatic and tragic event that is now being investigated as an arson, possibly set to cover up a murder. While it may be some time before owner Joshua Pollack is able to complete repairs and reopen his popular deli, the Source and its central bar, RiNo Yacht Club, are pitching in to help Denverites get their morning bagel fix.
This Sunday, May 15, Rosenberg's will be serving bagels and bagel sandwiches at the RiNo Yacht Club bar from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., or until the food runs out. "We're excited to get back to serving the community our bagels and shmear," Pollack said in a message sent from the Source, the artisan food market located inside a converted factory at 3350 Brighton Boulevard.
While Rosenberg's won't be able to serve its full menu or sell bagels by the dozen, customers can at least order plain and everything bagels with cream cheese, lox or whitefish salad. As a bonus, the Yacht Club will be serving up a selection of classic and newfangled brunch cocktails.
Until Rosenberg's is back in business, Pollack says, he'll be scheduling more bagel pop-ups, with locations and dates still to be determined.
