The Nosh Beverly Hills started out as a bagel shop and neighborhood delicatessen for people to hang out, talk, and eat. The bagels were hand rolled, boiled, and baked the old-fashioned way. Today they still make their bagels the exact same way. Their bagels are some of the most popular items on the menu. Every day they make fresh plain, sesame, poppy, cinnamon raisin, onion, garlic, rye, everything, pumpernickel, egg, blueberry, whole wheat, sea salt, and cheddar cheese bagels! They continue to be the old-fashioned bagel shop plus more now that they include food for every meal of the day.
We had a chance to chat with David, co-owner of The Nosh Beverly Hills, to ask him a few questions.
When did The Nosh first open?
The Nosh first opened in 1975, but Ron and I acquired it in 2005.
Can you give a little history on The Nosh?
It used to be called Bagel Nosh as part of the original franchise, then it went into private hands, and finally was acquired by Ron and me as a full service restaurant in 2005.
Where do you get most of your customer-base from?
Most of our customers are Beverly Hills locals.
What is the most popular menu item?
We have so many menu items that its hard to know which one customers like the best.
What is your own personal favorite menu item?
I can’t decide. There are too many to choose from! The chicken soup is really good. I also really like the pastrami, brisket, Mediterranean platter with organic falafel, and the chicken Caesar salad!
David also noted that 90% of their food is made in-house with natural and organic ingredients that are all fresh and high-quality. He also commented on the fact that The Nosh Beverly Hills is 50% traditional Jewish food and 50% innovative California food.
