Bagels near 51 & Park (split from General Topics)

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?

  1. 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.

    2. Thanks to all. Oh Man I'm excited to finally get a good bagel and a shmear.
