Ah, the bagel. A New York City institution. Just like the pizza slice, the NYC bagel is one of our City's great foods. Who has the best? I've had some fabulous bagels. Ess-A-Bagel is pretty darn good. Down in my hood of the East Village you'll find a long line of cool and hip young things at Tompkins Square Bagels. It's my neighborhood bagel joint and it's great! The best thing about Tompkins Square bagels is the variety of cream cheese flavors. There are a lot, and all are genius. It's worth the wait.
An everything bagel with white fish salad is bagel perfection.
Everyting bagel with wasabi cream cheese. Wasabi cream cheese= ingenious! Love this!
How about some bacon and herb cream cheese? Yes, please. Awesome!
