Goldberg’s Fine Foods, a New York-style bagel shop and deli that originated in Atlanta, opened yesterday in the CBD with bagel beignets and matzo ball soup, reports Ian McNulty. The restaurant occupies 6,500 square feet next door to the Roosevelt Hotel.
Goldberg’s serves breakfast all day: bagel sandwiches, omelettes and other egg preparations.
For lunch, its “famous po-boy” (the menu says it’s been there since 1972) deviates from the norm with corned beef, bologna, turkey, swiss cheese, and a dill pickles for the filling. Don’t expect airy po-boy bread either: It’s served on a “homemade roll.”
Other sandwich options include reubens and other classic deli preparations. Deli salads like chicken, tuna chopped liver, egg, and white fish are also available.
The bagel beignets are one of several menu additions specific to the New Orleans outpost.
Opening hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Correction (June 28, 2018): This story has corrected the number of bagel varieties Goldberg’s carries on a typical day. It is 26, not 32.
