Looks like all those free-bagel pop-ups were part of a down-low R&D: The Oregonian reports this afternoon that KitchenCru owner Michael Madigan has plans to open a bagel shop in Old Town, dubbed Bowery Bagels. The spot, across the street from KitchenCru in what was most recently an optometrist shop/art gallery called Ogle, will see Madigan, a New York native, creating bagels inspired by a childhood favorite: NYC's Glendale Bakery. Madigan tells the O that the operation will aim to create everything in-house:

"All the schmears, smoking salmon in the kitchen, roasting our own beef, turkey, chicken, making our own corned beef and pastrami. I really want this to be taking that local food chain to the maximum degree possible."

Bowery Bagels is aiming for a June opening date; in the meantime, Madigan will serve free bagels at KitchenCru during a pop-up event this Saturday (March 31) starting at 11am. More information as it becomes available.
