Brooklyn Bread Express has finally lifted its shutters at the Clark St station, taking over the space formerly occupied by NYC Sliders (and before that Fresh Café Bar). For a small space, this offshoot of the Carroll Gardens eatery offers a wide selection of bagels, from your everything to your whole wheat everything to chocolate and French toast. And about the bagels, owner Dimitri Bayless said, “These are brick oven bagels, not boiled, so they’re less doughy.” I spoke to Dimitri while enjoying one of the brick-oven bagels (and really good coffee) from the shoe shine chairs across the way. He told me, “We’re testing out how a satellite store will work. If this goes well we’ll open a few more. As you can see there’s a lot of foot traffic here, so we’re optimistic.” And indeed, even for 9ish on a Saturday morning there were plenty of back-and-forths from the 2/3. In addition to bagels, there were muffins, pastries and sandwiches made to order. “People seem to really like the food so far,” said Dimitri, “but we really want to hear what people have to say.” So have a bite, why not? Also you can check them out on Instagram.
