After transitioning out of a career in the entertainment and record industries, owner Jan Marc Dorfman jokes that he began looking for a new way to “sell round things with holes in the middle.” He fully embraced this new opportunity when he founded Delancey Street Bagels in November of 1989, originally stocking his shelves with 18 bagel varieties and a coffee machine that could only brew two pots at a time. Since then, he has expanded the selection to feature 22 different bagels—including cinnamon raisin, sourdough, and asiago cheese—as well as a full espresso bar with roasted arabica beans from organic and international producers as far away as Guatemala and Kenya. The staff fills the rest of the menu with hot deli sandwiches and an array of baked goods that can include muffins, cinnamon rolls, and scones alongside seasonal items.
Based on Delancey Street in New York City’s lower east side, a bustling corridor for local sidewalk vendors and pushcarts, the shop emanates nostalgia for an old-school marketplace with exposed brickwork and sepia-tone exit signs above the doors.

During each of its many weekly classes, The Handwork Studio's staff of teachers and professional artists give creative kids a fun, hands-on introduction to expressing themselves through machine sewing, fashion, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, and needle felting. Workshops such as A Snip-It of Sewing, A Touch of Handwork, A Feel for Fashion, or A Pinch of Knitting Needle Fencing combine a smaller class size with a curriculum that accommodates children of all ages, except Faulknerian man-children with nonlinear senses of time. Petite purlers can also get a head-start on the holidays with a themed Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day workshop, which supply all the tools, materials, and instruction necessary to create handmade decorations, meet new friends, and build foolproof Cupid traps. All classes must be used within four months of the Groupon.
