Kismet Bagels and Pat’s King of Steaks Team Up for Cheesesteak Bialy Collaboration | Marilyn Johnson
Kismet Bagels, a local favorite since 2020, and Pat’s King of Steaks, a beloved local brand since 1930, plus the originator of the Philly cheesesteak, are teaming up for a “Cheesesteak Bialy” collaboration on Tuesday, September 13 from 10 am at Pat’s Steaks located at 1237 East Passyunk Avenue.
As the only bagel shop in Philly that also specializes in bialys, Kismet Bagels owners Jacob and Alexandra Cohen have collaborated with a number of Philadelphia brands to create a special, limited-edition bialys, but that’s the first time the Cohens have done it with a brand cheesesteak.
“We’ve loved Pat’s since we were kids, and when we met Frank Olivieri of Pat’s Steaks not too long ago, we immediately bonded,” said Jacob Cohen. “We talked about doing something cool together and we thought a bialy cheesesteak had to be done. Frank was so kind to make himself available to collaborate and accommodate us for this, and we can’t wait to be inside while seeing those famous East Passyunk cheesesteak lines winding around the corner that you all see days.”
The Cheesesteak Bialy will include Kismet Bagels Sesame Bialy, Kismet Bagels Caramelized Onions, American Cooper Sharp Cheese, Pat’s Steaks Grilled Rib Eye and Hot Pepper Relish (optional). Bialy sales will begin at 10 a.m. and will continue while supplies last.
