UPDATE: Bagel Buoy was up-and-running again on Friday morning. Owner Darrin Levine was not immediately available for comment; nor was attorney Alex Kriegsman, who represents the KKT Sag Harbor Corporation, which owns the building where Bagel Buoy is located.


Bagel Buoy, which was accused in February by its landlord of allowing numerous county health and safety code violations to persist, has shut down, according to a sign posted Thursday on the door of the building.

“Please be advised that Bagel Buoy is closed and no longer at this location as of May 2, 2018,” reads the “notice of closure.”

KKT Sag Harbor Corporation, which owns the Sag Harbor building that Bagel Buoy occupied, had claimed in court that the eatery was in violation of its lease because it failed to “keep the premises and all parts thereof neat, clean and orderly” and “promptly remove all waste, rubbish, trash, recyclables and renderings of every kind and nature … and not allow the same to accumulate.”

Alex Kriegsman, the attorney representing KKT Sag Harbor Corporation, could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.

Darrin Levine, Bagel Buoy’s owner, also could not immediately be reached for comment.
