In 2019, Orly Gottesman and Josh Borenstein opened Modern Bread and Bagel, a 100% dedicated gluten-free and kosher restaurant in New York City. Orly, a classically trained pastry chef, began her food studies many years before in an effort to create better-tasting gluten-free treats for Borenstein, her celiac husband. After living and traveling all around the world, she perfected her own gluten-free flour blend using ancient grains, and now sells a full line of flours and mixes.
It’s these flour blends that Orly uses to make all of the incredible breads and pastries available at Modern Bread and Bagel. And incredible they are. Their daily pastry selection is vast, with much of it available for shipping as well. As sampling is below.
- Red velvet brownies
- Banana bread
- Black and white cookies
- Cinnamon buns
- Thin mint cookies
- Bagels – plain, cinnamon raisin, sesame, superseed
Lots more goodies are available by pre-order, and many are dairy free. Check their website for details.
Onto the bagels – they’re available every day at the restaurant and for shipping across the country. They’re big – we’re talkin’ New York big, and they’ve got that authentic bagel chew and flavor. You don’t have to toast them, which is almost unheard of in the gluten-free bread world, but they’re really good toasted too. They’re even dairy free. How do they do it? Don’t know, but we hope they never stop, and we’re happy to pay a premium for such deliciousness.
The Modern Bread and Bagel restaurant menu is an eclectic combination of food cultures from Sydney, Tel Aviv, and New York. It’s 100% kosher, and they offer catering platters as well. Check the takeout menu online, and once the world reopens, be sure to put Modern on your gluten-free “must-do” list for NYC. Until then, treat yourself to bagels, because you deserve it, and they’re worth every chewy penny.
