Treat yourself and that someone special to a truly special brunch! This kit partners up one pound of vertically sliced nova salmon (a truly luxurious taste experience) with three freshly baked bagels and a half-pound of cream cheese. Add to that a pint of Water Dog’s proprietary Bloody Mary mix (add your own vodka, of course) and let the celebration begin!

Water Dog Smoke House was founded by Dan Greenberg and Steve Marchel in Margate, New Jersey, And after several years of selling their exceptional smoked fish at farmers markets, the duo opened their restaurant in 2019. Water Dog’s small batch, artisanal, sustainably sourced fish is hand-sliced, cured on the day their fishmonger delivers it, and smoked the following day with no preservatives, coloring, or sugar added.

The recipient of the bagel brunch basket from Water Dog was absolutely thrilled! Things were all orchestrated smoothly, the package arrived in great shape and on time. I could not be more satisfied. Thanks for helping me pull off a memorable birthday!
Ben H. - Cincinnati, OH
My order was on time, secured in foil-type bubble wrap which kept it cold and from banging around, with the fish itself sealed in a sturdy primary wrap. No mess, no leaking, and the salmon looked sublime and saucy. I’ve got to mention that I intended to buy the Salmon Candy, but ordered the Kippered Salmon Bellies by accident; then when our parcel arrived and we got the first look at those babies, and were happy as hell! Them fishies were beautiful, oily, sweet, and addictive; every bit of the whole pound was lush and delectable. How come all my mistakes don’t turn out that well??
