Back in July, we reported on ~WISE SONS~ (Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman’s) upcoming commissary kitchen, production bakery, and Wise Sons Bagel. They’re opening a new space on Fillmore, and we wanted to let you know that things are moving along. Yay.
The 2,200-foot space is built out and they are currently baking babka and rugelach for their multiple locations (which now includes a kiosk at Square that opened a couple of weeks ago, serving a few sandwiches and a salad—and no, it’s not open to the general public). They unfortunately have to resolve a few electrical issues before they can ramp up their entire baking operation and kitchen (and move their smoker over).
The big question is: when can we get the bagels? They have not yet started that part of their operation, and it looks like it will still be at least a month before we can walk into the shop—plan on December. To recap, there will be a retail counter in the front of the bakery where you can order bagels, espresso, baked goods, a few bagel sandwiches, pastrami, fish, and schmears in the grab-and-go case, with limited seats at a few tables and a window counter. Of course we will keep you posted on when you can try their bagels, which will likely arrive at their multiple locations first. Check out the fun logo here! 1520 Fillmore St. at Geary.
