There’s about to be even more Eastside bagel competition, as Maury’s bagels picks up a new permanent storefront right in the thick of Silver Lake. The mostly weekend pop-up shop has snagged a space at 2829 Bellevue, with plans to open by late spring or early summer, if all goes well.
Jason Kaplan, the man behind Maury’s, is a well-known name in certain Los Angeles circles. A longtime GM at Gjelina Take Away in Venice, Kaplan has more recently been crafting bagels for Downtown’s Sunday Smorgasburg sessions, but now plies his trade Saturdays at Dinosaur Coffee in Silver Lake, and Sundays at the Hollywood Farmers Market.
The new address clocks in at a scant 800 square feet and will mostly be a wholesale and catering operation, with a small consumer-facing side for customers looking to grab a bite of cured fish or cream cheese on their way into work. That’s good news for consumers, particularly in this suddenly bagel-rich market that includes Belle’s Bagels in Highland Park, the roaming Yeastie Boys truck and shop collaborations, and the soon-to-return Brooklyn Bagel Bakery in Historic Filipinotown.
The new Maury’s standalone space was long a bakery (though that was ten years ago) before Kaplan came onboard, so there’s thankfully less permitting that needs to be done on that front, so stay tuned for an opening alert and updates as they come.
