PROJECTED OPENING DATE: Late February/Early March

1017 7th St NW

The husband and wife duo, Allee and Oliver Cox, have left their media/PR careers to open up their new bagel concept: Pearl’s Bagels. The New Jersey natives noticed a lack of authentic bagel shops in their Shaw neighborhood and are now striving to create the ultimate bagel oasis for the District. Pearl’s Bagels will occupy the former Hogo venue, offering an extensive menu of bagel and spread options. These traditional dough-filled creations will solely use simple ingredients to parallel that beloved NJ bagel.
