Best bagels UWS?
Hi. My cousin will be in Manhattan next week and is keen to try out authentic NY Bagels. Any recommendations of where to buy the best?
Last week we were visiting and tried several of the places recommended above. H&H and Ess-a-Bagel were tied for our favourites, with Absolute a distant third and Kossar's bialys quite a disappointment (fortunately, the Doughnut Plant was nearby to save the day). But my wife and I both think that the bagels at all these places are less dense and chewy than we remember them from the '70's. --PR
