Roland of the now-shuttered Roland's Bagels has taken his delectable ring-shaped treats to Terra Bakery in Hayes Valley. "The bagels are good ($2 each, but hefty), the interior a bit softer than my favorites from New York; bialy is very very good," says dordogne. Want lox with that? Be prepared to fork over $10. There's also "a surprisingly elaborate and varied menu of appetizers, sandwiches and entrées," dordogne adds, including steamed mussels, smoked mozzarella pizzette, and a sandwich of crisp, juicy fried chicken on a housemade club roll. The pastries also look amazing, SteveG notes.
But watch out: Roland may already be on the move, says ChowFun_derek, who heard from a server that Roland "stormed out and is looking for a new place."
