Longtime Dupont Circle seafood restaurant Pesce is popping up inside the Eastern Market location of Bullfrog Bagels for the next three months. "One of our taglines is, 'You can’t get people who live on the Hill off the Hill,' so we might as well bring Pesce to them," says Chef Andrew LaPorta.

Debating the authenticity of a food is always complicated: Who gets to decide what’s real, and what’s not? Is it about methods, ingredients, recipes or just the origins of the cook? Describe a dish as legit and prepare for the baggage of memory and expectation to weigh down your chances of satisfaction.

New Dupont Circle Cafe Will Host Rotating Pop-Up Restaurants

September 8, 2017

The new Shop Made in D.C. store coming to 1333 19th Street NW this fall is designed to exclusively showcase locally made goods. The retail-hospitality mash-up is supported by entities including the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development and Golden Triangle Business Improvement District.

NRG is expected to make the in-house cafe available to different pop-up restaurants. Tentative contributors include breakfast source Bullfrog Bagels, soup delivery outfit Prescription Chicken, and budding dessert chain Ice Cream Jubilee.

“Many of the pop-ups will come from Mess Hall,” an NRG spokeswoman tells Eater, though she specified that the Edgewood-based culinary incubator is not an official partner.

Jeremiah Cohen of Bullfrog Bagels Mon, 01/05/2015 - In the Chef’s Kitchen BY ANNETTE NIELSEN


If you’ve ever enjoyed living near an iconic bagelry like Ess-a-Bagel or H & H Bagels, it’s a challenge to find anything that comes close to a ‘real’ bagel with a schmear outside of New York unless you follow food writer Ruth Reichl’s advice and head to Montreal.

People swear, “it’s the water” – the famed and proprietary New York H2O in which the bagels are boiled before they’re baked – and therefore a New York City bagel can’t be matched. Many believe you can’t hold a candle to deli smoked meats and cured fishes, either.

How an upstart baker helped bring respect to D.C.’s bagel scene

May 12 at 7:00 AM

It’s around lunchtime on a cold but sunny spring day, and Jeremiah Cohen is walking along H Street NE when he spots a “for rent” sign on a dilapidated storefront. Undeterred by the large, faded “grand opening” banner still legible in the window — testament to a previous failed business — he starts dialing the phone number listed on the sign.

Bullfrog Bagels Turns a New York Classic Into a DC Original -- By Rina Rapuano

June 6, 2014

The lamentations over DC’s lack of good bagels are longstanding and legion, and the search for a good one in the city seems to have hit a fever pitch - if last weekend’s lines at theBullfrog Bagels pop-up at Cork Market are any indication, anyway. Bagels have even been called the new cupcake. But what if a true New York or Montreal or San Francisco bagel can never be made in DC? Bullfrog owner and baker Jeremiah Cohen says maybe it’s time to embrace something new: the DC bagel.

Good thing Cork Market added another weekend for the Bullfrog Bagels and Bialys pop up. Anyone get a taste?

A friend mine with very good bagel/bialy bona fides says:

“These are the real deal! Ate a bialy fresh from the oven. Better than Kossars.”

A Match Made on H Street

October 30, 2014

When Bullfrog Bagels opened up shop at Star and Shamrock Tavern and Deli on H Street, NE, last month, the Jewish and Irish worlds collided doubly.

Bullfrog Bagels’ managing partner and master bagel maker Jeremiah Cohen and general manager and business partner Abby Sexton have been friends for years, since their days at DC institution the Tabard Inn in Dupont Circle. Sexton, who is Jewish and Irish, worked for Cohen for years when he was the general manager at the inn, which is owned by his family. When Cohen parted ways with the family business, the friendship he and Sexton had forged over the years became a partnership that resulted in the new bagel venture.

June 6, 2014

This week’s Y&H column is all about a new crop of bakers attempting to rid D.C. of its bagel inferiority complex. Bullfrog Bagels, from former Tabard Inngeneral manager Jeremiah Cohen, has already gained quite a bit of buzz for the New York-style rounds and bialys he sold out of at Cork Market last weekend. If you missed out, don't worry, because Bullfrog Bagels is back at Cork Market this weekend. Unfortunately, preorders are sold out, but there will be some bagels available for walk-ins at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. (Get there early—they disappeared fast last weekend.) Walk-in patrons will be limited to half a dozen bagels in plain, sesame, poppy, onion, and everything flavors. The bagels are $1.50 each.
