Bagels near 51 & Park (split from General Topics)

jfood Feb 5, 2007 12:48 PM

Moved from NJ to FFD county CT and left my bagels behind. The people up here have no idea what a bagel is, how sad.

I now have two offices and one brings me to 51 and Park in NYC a couple of days a week and am looking for real bagels to have in the morning as well as bring home for family. Any suggestions?

    Where are in you CT? If you're in Stamford then try Liz Sue.

        i'm pretty sure there's an ess-a-bagel around 51st and 3rd. i've only had from the 1st ave location but should be just as good.

          Yup, 3rd ave just north of Smith and Wollenskys. I think its between 50th and 51st.

            The Ess-a-Bagel is between 50th and 51st on 3rd Avenue (east side of the street). I used to work in the crystal pavillion between 50th and 49th and would get bagels there all the time. Quite good. Plus the old guy behind the counter is a hoot.
