Episode #10: “Running a restaurant is no game”
Berry Horowitz is the founder and proprietor of “Bunch O Bagels,” an iconic bagel shop in Crown Heights. He also owned the now-defunct “Fish Fish And Cannoli” on Empire Blvd.
After spending a year of Kollel in Tzfas, Horowitz came back to the U.S. looking to make his mark. Noticing a void in the Crown Heights for authentic New York bagels, “Bunch O Bagels” was born.
From the get-go, Bunch O Bagels has become a community mainstay offering kettle-boiled bagels, breakfast offerings, a full fish, pasta, sandwiches and salads menu. Horowitz is the father of 4 and lives with his family in the Five Towns, NY.
