Bagelville Is Opening in Arlington Heights
It looks like a bagel shop in downtown Boston is going to be opening another store northwest of the city, moving into the space where a location of a chain of bakery-cafes had been.
A recent check on the space indicates that Bagelville is planning to open in the old Panera spot on Mass. Ave. in Arlington Heights, making this the second location of the shop (the original store is in Faneuil Hall). Based on the menu at the Boston location, expect to see such items as bagels, egg dishes, soups, salads, sandwiches, and fresh-made juices.
[October 17 update: If all goes well with the licensing and permitting process, Bagelville could be opening in Arlington Heights in the middle of December or early January.]
[April 1, 2014 update: A poster on the Chowhound site mentions that a banner is now up saying the new Bagelville in Arlington Heights opens on Friday (April 4).]
Panera closed its Arlington Heights store this spring after being in business for approximately 15 years.
The address for this new shop in Arlington Heights is: Bagelville, 1398 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476. Its website is at http://bagelvilleonline.com/
