Bagels for the room near 34th and Lex?

I know we will be knoshing all over town, but two of our mornings will include no food until 11 or so (imagine? ha!). Anywhere near the above that might sell good bagels we can keep in our room (we have a mini kitchen)? Late night would be great, too, since our first night will most likely be late (11 or midnight or so).

        I don't think Pick-a-Bagels are that good. In the general area, I'd go to Bagelry on 30th and 3rd (although I think its worth the hike to get to Ess-a-Bagel on 21st and 1st). Bagelry's bagels are really good, although a lot smaller than the bagels from Pick-a-Bagel or Ess-a-Bagel. Also note, that fresh bagels don't really keep that well. Your best bet for storage would be to keep them in individual ziploc bags rather than the paper bags they'll come in.

          I'm not a fan of Bagelry at all. Pick-a-Bagel is much better, in my opinion. Haven't made it to Ess-a yet.

      2. Also, if you are after "noshes" (sp?) at any hour, there's Sarge's Deli at 3rd Ave. between 36th and 37th Sts. It's open 24 hours (including for delivery) and has good pastrami sandwiches, matzoh ball soup etc.

        1. Daniel's Bagels! Third & 37th. Not only do they have great bagels, but they have baked goods made on the premises. Very good whitefish salad and freshly sliced nova. If you get to wandering and want a good appetizing place - Sable's @ 77th & Second. They have the most incredible lobster "rolls" - nova wrapped around lobster salad and sliced like Japanese maki. If you get to Chelsea, try Murray's Bagels (can't remember the exact location though).

            Get to Ess-a-Bagel anyway you can: foot, cab, bus, bike. It's totally worth the splurge; you will not be disappointed!

              Thanks everyone. I think I'll shoot for a morning walk to Essabagel while the rest of the gang gets up and going. It looks to be a 20 minute walk or so (could subway from 33rd and park to 51st, too, right---6 train). I called and they open at 6am.

                Well alright! Hope you'll post your Ess-a-Bagel thoughts.
