Rosenberg's Bagels & Delicatessen (@rosenbergsbagel)
Bridge & Tunnel Restaurant Group (BTRG) founder Joshua Pollack (a.k.a. @thebageldude) was born and raised in the suburbs of New York City. After graduating from high school, he took his love for food and family west, to study at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Drawing on his passion for New York City’s classic food establishments like Russ & Daughters and Katz’s Deli, Joshua decided to focus on what he loves most – bagels and lox! Following years of product development and months of construction, Joshua opened the doors of Rosenberg's Bagels & Delicatessen to the public on July 26, 2014 in Five Points. Named after his mother and guardian angel, Karen Rosenberg Pollack, Rosenberg’s is rooted in the two things he is most passionate about – food and family.
Beloved throughout the Denver community, @rosenbergsbagel has also received national recognition from Food & Wine, The New York Times and more. What differentiates Rosenberg’s from other bagel shops is its process, which marries age-old techniques with a proprietary technology that replicates NYC's water and its ideal mineral levels. This results in the perfect bagel – crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside – delicious on its own and the perfect canvas for a simple schmear or an elaborate sandwich. The delicatessen also boasts house-cured and smoked fish and deli meats; authentic Jewish foods like matzo ball soup and potato knish; and an assortment of freshly baked goods, including challah, babka, hamantashen, and rugelach.
We have plenty of Rosenberg's regulars within TUF, but our Founder's go to is the egg and pepper jack, with a little schmear, on an everything bagel 😋. Head over to 27th and Welton and start your day off right 🥯☕, you'll thank us later!
