Eric's Story

It is about tradition and taste above all.

Since I was young I not only loved food, I loved when people enjoyed the food I made for them.  Even a simple sandwich. I worked in a deli for a bit and I often thought maybe I would want my own.  

You know how it goes though, life took over and so I put the thought aside.

I ended up doing things like Maintenance Engineer, Iron workers union, and Disaster relief work,

not exactly a chef. 


 When I met my wife about 8 years ago I move to Stamford, CT

 from my life long home Bayside, NY.  

I quickly missed some custom comforts, and the New York bagel was high on that list.

 I would tell my wife, "someday I'm going to make it happen". 

Finally I decided to follow my passion and take this bagel tradition to Connecticut.  

I only choose high quality ingredients for the best taste and texture.  

Yes, crispy on the outside and just the right amount of chewy on the inside.  

My bagel method proves to be the authentic New York style in almost every way, except geographically.  

Carefully baked to perfection, one dozen at a time.

Our Mission at Eric's Bagels is for you to experience joy along with the fulfilling taste while eating our

Old School NYC style bagel.  Their unique, yet traditional taste brings families to the table.


Let me take you back to the roots of this infamous taste.  ​


Welcome to my world.
