Move over, corner deli. Major Food Group’s latest venture has caused a stir with its recent opening, bringing classic Jewish favorites to the not-so-casual dining realm and serving up artisanal bagels to the discerning masses. Enter the sunken room that is Sadelle’s with its exposed brick, Edison bulbs, and warm atmosphere, proving far more accessible than the eatery’s predecessors (Carbone, Santina, Dirty French, et al). Behind the oven is Per Se and Roberta’s baker Melissa Weller, commandeering the kitchen with a vision of precision and finesse, an art boiled down to a science, the result in the form of a perfect bagel. Snag a table in the dining room and experience SoHo in slow motion with a tower of bagels and other signature specialties, or queue up at the bakery for a baked good on the go.

 

Bonus: Sadelle’s offers gluten free bagels, so those with dietary restrictions can share the love. Get ‘em while they’re hot; contact your Attaché for reservations and menu picks.
