The Detroit Institute of Bagels has found a storefront. DIB announced this week on their website that the company will make its home in Corktown in a nondescript building at Michigan Avenue and the Lodge freeway. There isn't a bagel store to be found in Detroit, and brothers Ben and Dan Newman set out to change that last year. They started making bagels -- handmade, boiled and baked -- out of their Corktown home and quickly collected enthusiastic fans and customers by word-of-mouth.
When DIB opens, expect classics as well as unique recipes like olive oil, bacon-cheddar, and blueberry ricotta bagels. No word on a date yet, but our fingers are crossed for January, so we can get to work on our 2012 diet resolution: Eat More Bagels.
