Einstein Bros. Bagels is testing its new bagelrito in Denver

The Lakewood-based bagel chain Einstein Bros. Bagels is now testing a new bagel breakfast product called a bagelrito at five of its Denver area stores. According to a press release, the new bagelrito consists of a tortilla filled with two cage-free eggs, thick-cut bacon, turkey sausage, three cheeses, has browns, salsa, and green chili that has then been hand-wrapped in Asiago bagel dough and baked.

According to the release, the Bagelrito is now available at the following five Denver-area Einstein Bros. locations: 555 North Broadway in Denver, 14401 West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood, 120 Wadsworth Boulevard in Lakewood, 8246 West Bowles Avenue in Littleton, and 9392 Sheridan Boulevard in Westminster.

Though the press release indicates the bagels are being tested for a limited time, Einstein Bros. Bagels has not yet announced how long the Bagelrito will remain available at those stores.

The Waffle Place has closed

About a year after it began offering sandwiches and even hot dogs served on waffles on South Broadway, The Waffle Place has closed. Eater learned of the closure from an email sent by Groupon to purchasers of a the Waffle Place groupon notifying them they would be receiving a refund for their purchase. Located at 1384 South Broadway, the Waffle Place was opened by the founders of Euro Crepes, which is located on the same block and remains open.

Mercantile has briefly closed for renovations

Union Station’s James Beard award winning restaurant, Mercantile Dining and Provision, is closed at least through the weekend while it undergoes renovations.

The Denver Post first reported that much of the work is being done in staff areas like the kitchen, which is getting a new floor. However, the Post also reported the restaurant is getting a new barter as well as a second pastry counter that will showcase its Füdmill baked goods. Füdmill is a partnership between Mercantile founder and chef Alex Seidel and Denver D Bar founder Keegan Gerhard.

Seidel told the Post the renovations will also make the dining room “feel lighter and fresher.” The restaurant is planning to reopen sometime early next week. [The Denver Post]
