Multnomah Village Pizzeria Tastebud Will Launch a Bagel Subscription Service in 2021
For 15 years, the team at Southwest Portland’s Tastebud has been experimenting with its bagel recipe. Die-hard fans can remember the pizzeria’s “bakery pop-ups,” or spotting bagels at the farmers market stand. Starting in January, however, customers will be able to get a dozen of the pizzeria’s bagels every month. The Multnomah Village pizzeria is making Portland’s closest relative to Montreal-style bagels — boiled and then baked in a wood-fired oven — via a bagel subscription service. On the first Sunday of each month, bagel club members will pick up a dozen bagels from the pizzeria to freeze or eat in one sitting like a champion. People pay $50 quarterly to be a part of the bagel club, but they can add on things like shmears, cream cheese, or lox. The first bagel pickup will be held January 3; sign up here. [EaterWire]
