The bagel. A culinary institution of NYC. Synonymous with New York. Every deli has them, many places specialize in them, but who makes the best one? Which place reigns supreme?
Ess-A-Bagel is one such place that is on many "best bagel" lists, and after visiting last week, I'd have to agree. Topped with good whitefish salad, perfect texture, nicely seeded, it was a wonderful and perfect bagel. I was in culinary awe.
So head to Ess-A-Bagel for the city's best bagel. It'll bring the true New Yorker out of you.
