The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. is coming to Pikesville. The first location of the Boca Raton, Fla.-based restaurant chain in the Mid-Atlantic Region will be located in Hooks Village, in Pikesville and will open sometime in the early spring, developers say.

The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. is known for a proprietary water treatment system that replicates the quality of Brooklyn's water, which is thought by some to be the secret ingredient in its world-famous bagels. The bagel company's national spokesman is Larry King, who opened the first west coast franchise of Original Brooklyn Water Bagel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
