"GO NOW: WOODGRAIN BAGELS"
"...the staff is warm and welcoming. But the bagels—on full display in an angled trough—are front and center. Bowen and executive chef Jeremy Schwartz (a former sous chef at Oak at Fourteenth) are trying to adhere to tradition as much as possible."

"Woodgrain Bagels, a Montreal-Style Eatery, Opened in Boulder"
"Woodgrain offers several kinds of hand-pulled, wood-fired bagels to eat in or take out. There are breakfast items like the pastrami hash and woodsman omelette, sandwiches like a Mile High Reuben but also avocado toast (made on bagels, of course), plus sides, salads, and of course poutine. For coffee drinks, the Boulder spot features locally-roasted Boxcar beans."

"Woodgrain Introduces Boulder to Montreal Bagels, Targets Denver Next"
"...And Bowen definitely plans to expand. "We designed this as a prototype for all future locations," he says. The Boulder Woodgrain is currently open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, but a Lowry location (Bowen hopes to add his bagelry to the mix at the Hangar 2 development) will likely have later hours, since beer and wine will be served."

"MONTREAL-STYLE BAGELS MAKE THEIR WAY ACROSS THE BORDER."
"...Hailing from the Toronto fine-dining scene, Founder and Owner David Bowen recognizes that the experience is just as much of a selling point as is the food offering. Hospitality abounds as hand-rolled and handcrafted bagels, spreads and sandwiches are prepared to perfection and tailored to each customer.."
