The former owner of the Manhattan Bagel chain pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges that he defrauded 10 investors, including his in-laws, out of more than $1.2 million, U.S. prosecutors said. The victims thought their money was being used for business investments. But Allan Boren used the funds to support "gambling trips to Las Vegas, Atlantic City and the Bahamas," the U.S. attorney's office said.

Manhattan Bagel Co., the nation's second-largest bagel chain, said it will restate its first-quarter earnings because of improper accounting practices it uncovered at its California subsidiary, I&J, based in the San Fernando Valley.

Having successfully navigated the same uncertain consumer market that swallowed the sticky bun, crumbled the English muffin and humbled the haughty croissant, the bagel has landed. And, say baking experts and stock analysts, those boiled circles of chewy dough are coming into their own. "Everywhere you go, you see bagels," said Eric Cano, president of I & Joy Manhattan Bagel company, born two weeks ago in a merger between North Hills-based I & Joy Bagels and Manhattan Bagel Co. Inc.

Four years ago, customers bought bagels, snacks, liquor and Mexican food at the Canoga Center. But the only signs of life now at the little strip mall, which sits vacant behind a 10-foot-high fence and razor wire, are the shining eyes of stray cats peering from dark doorways.
