Brooklyn Water Bagel Company Comes to Hollywood (Updated)

The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. has opened its doors in Hollywood.

The company says the secret to its bagels is in its Brooklynized water.

In case you're not sure what the heck that means, many people say the reason why New York bagels and pizza taste so damned superior is because of the New York City municipal water used in the process.

The Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. installs a mini-water treatment plant

inside every location, which turns South Florida water into a close

replica of authentic New York tap water. The best thing about this

purification process? The company pledges to help local residents by

giving them free water (up to five gallons) in case of a boil-water

announcement (which happens all too frequently in South Florida).

The company has some heavy hitters behind it. Advisory board members

include chef Allen Susser, Snapple cofounder Leonard Marsh, and retired

talker Larry King. Fans include Barbra Streisand, who recently catered a

wrap party with the bagels, according to South Florida Business Journal.

The new Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. is located at Stirling Square

Plaza, 2877 Stirling Road, Hollywood.
