    1. Sounds like a good idea for a business venture. Make sure to serve poutine too.

        1. Mile End has a booth at the Hester Street Fair on the LES. I had a bagel from them on the fair's opening weekend.

          1. I love that the word is pronounced "ba-ZHEL" in Quebec; that always makes me smile.

              It is?? I grew up in Montreal eating St. Viateur bagels (white seeds only, please) and never heard it pronounced that way -- but I moved away 20 years ago so maybe this is a new thing....

                I still have family in TMR -all 'de vieille souche'- and that's how they say it.
                (Granted, they're not big bagel eaters.)

                  I beg to differ. The current street prononciation in French is "baie-GUEULE."
