Recently, I tossed a few questions at Ian from Ian's Pizza, who is half of the duo behind a new bagel shop coming to a spot just off the Capitol Square. He was kind enough to oblige:
1. So, Gotham Bagels on East Mifflin Street is slated to open soon. What are you looking forward to most about the new venture?
Ian: Great bagels, coffee and cream cheese!
2. Are you working off of your successful pizza model - are you going to have all sorts of crazy, interesting types of bagels?
Ian: No, just the opposite. We're sticking to the basics and making sure we do them well. If someone want a sundried tomato bagel they'll have to look elsewhere.
3. Why the name 'Gotham'?
Ian: Joe (my partner) liked the name.
4. Any chance you'd share the date of the grand opening?
Ian: March 30th (Friday!)
5. Anything else we should know?
Ian: That's all for now.
