There’s a new bagel shop coming to the Inner Sunset from ~MIDNITE BAGEL~ founder Nick Beitcher (he was the lead baker at Tartine Bakery for five years). Eater reports he’ll still be baking his creative, tangy, whole-grain sourdough bagels out of his commissary space in Dogpatch, and will drive the fresh bagels to the storefront. His awesome cream cheese flavors (love the salmon and dill) and some bagel sandwiches will also be on offer; plus coffee. Midnite Bagel is opening in the former Tea 4 You in about three months or so. 646 Irving St. at 8th Ave.

In the meantime, you can find these flavor-forward and crusty bagels at farmers’ markets and via Pastel (I picked some up a week ago with their service in SF: sesame, poppy, and buckwheat-black sesame, plus there are bialys, bread, and everything cookies; use my link for a $20 discount off your first order of $40+, which is kind of amazing!).

Just a quick happy note to let you know Off the Grid Fort Mason is returning after a two-year break on Friday April 1st! I’ll have truck highlights (there will be 25-plus!) and more details soon, but just wanted you to know your Fridays are about to be extra-tasty again.
