Fragels Are Coming

Bagel Fragel aims for a year-end opening.

by Sabine Bickford

From the December, 2019 issue

When we spoke to Bagel Fragel owner Patricia Rockette one year ago, she and her son (co-owner Michael Rockette) had just lost their longtime Plymouth Rd. location after their new Ohio-based landlords signed the spot over to a new marijuana dispensary owned by one of the landlords' partners.

An online uproar won the Rockettes an extension on their lease beyond the original two days' notice, but the only home of the deep-fried "fragel" closed just before last Christmas.

Now, the Rockettes are getting ready to reopen in a small shop inside Washtenaw Ave.'s Washtenaw Commons. The former Cartridge World is waiting on some construction and a few permits, but Rockette is hoping to be open before 2020, almost exactly one year after leaving Plymouth Rd.

"It's small, but it's all we could find," she says. "You work with what you've got, and it's a great location. It has enough room so that we can bake and make all of our stuff, so we're good. That's the main thing: being able to make everything fresh still."

Bagel Fragel, (opening late December), 3500 Washtenaw. Phone & hours TBA.     (end of article)
