The Official Bagel List (And I Know Bagels)

It's almost a joke to talk about "New York-style bagels," since they can barely be found anywhere in the five boroughs. The New York bagel of old was a dense thing, small and malty, with a pull and tug that was utterly unlike any kind of bread. You could never have used one for a sandwich. There are still some great bagels left in New York, but not all of them are like those. Still, I can vouch for all of these as being the best we have to show. And they are pretty great indeed. Especially if you eat them fresh. Bagels are not overnight guests.
