Boston Restaurant Talk reports that Rosie's in the lower Chestnut Hill Mall the Street is closing and will be replaced by something called the Bagel Table, which promises not just bagels but "locally-smoked fishes" and "New York-style deli sandwiches" (so pastrami-on-rye sandwiches bigger than your head?).

State Rep. Ed Coppinger reports that Local 338 - named for the union that represented New York bagel makers - opened for business this morning. It's sort of a hybrid place: The bagels are made in New York, frozen, then trucked to West Roxbury.

When Faivish Pewzner last visited Boston, he was excited about many things. But the one thing he was most looking forward, was tasting the city's famous bagels. Boston is a creative town with an outdoor culture that loves good food. Art and music are really big here, and there are foodie spots everywhere you turn. From oysters, noodles, chicken, tuna, and egg salads, to a large variety of pastries, this city really has something for everyone. Over the last few years, Boston has been undergoing a bagel transformation. The city’s bagel bakeries have a lot to offer.

Wicked Local West Roxbury reports on plans for a bagel place in the same Centre Street block as Porter Cafe for a bagelry that would truck bagels "90%" prepared in New York, then cooked locally.

The as yet unnamed bagel place would join Bruegger's Bagels and Bagelville on VFW Parkway. Exodus Bagels is now churning out bagels just off Belgrade Avenue on the Roslindale line, where it plans a full-scale deli, and, of course, the Dunkin' Donuts on Spring Street and VFW Parkway sell bagel-like round breadstuffs.

Boston Restaurant Talk reports the impending opening of a new outlet that sells bagels and donuts.

No word if they will also sell arancini, pancakes, certain Chinese sticky buns and sourdough bread, but they should. And then they could call it Round the World or something.

Line for bagels in Roslindale Square

You don't often see people lining up for anything in Roslindale Square, but as roving UHub photographer Chris Dagdigian found, an Exodus Bagels pop-up at Redd's in Rozzie this morning brought out the bagel-starved Roslindalians:

"Hope this encourages them to open a storefront," he says.

Adam Kessel reports that Exodus Bagels will be doing some pop-up bagel sales at Redd's in Rozzie on Washington Street this Saturday morning. You may recall how last month, the Chubby Chickpea did several shakshuka Israeli brunches at 7 Star Bistro. Is a deli popup far behind?
