A bit about Eric

I'ts about taste and tradition, above all.

I’ve always loved food. I love it even more when people enjoy my food.

When I was a young man I had the chance to work in a deli, which sparked a fantasy that I could run my own someday.  You know how it goes, though. 

Life took over and I put the thought aside.  I journeyed into the Ironworkers Union to build bridges and skyscrapers. I also led maintenance and engineering at a nursing home and managed crews on fire and water damage sites.

After meeting my wife (of almost 10 years, as I write this), I moved from my lifelong home in Bayside, NY.  Who knew this Queens boy would end up in Stamford, CT?  I quickly missed certain hometown comforts — and the New York bagel was at the top of that list.

I decided to make my fantasy a reality and bring a taste of home to Connecticut.

Lovingly baked to perfection, one dozen at a time.  Crispy on the outside and just the right amount of chew on the inside! My bagel methods prove to be authentic New York style in almost every way – except geographically.

Let me take you back to the roots with this classic, artisan taste.  I know you’ll love Eric’s Bagels!

I am guided by My Mission:  for you to experience that memorable flavor you love while eating our bagel, with the indulgence that brings families to the table.
