    Gertel's closed on the LES in NYC a while ago (RIP...) and I know they deliver their challahs to 72nd St. Bagel on the westside, but does anyone know if they deliver to a neighborhood bakery or market on the upper east side??

    I can't justify paying $9 for a challah at Eli's!!

      I don't know about Gertel's, but you can get a Beigel's challlah at C-town (92nd & 2nd Ave) for about $2.99.

        I think they deliver to Park East Butcher on 84th and 2nd - if not, just ask the owner (Murray) about ordering from Gertel's. He is very accomodating.

          Thanks so much!

          I've been avoiding Park East b/c it's a hassle w/ my kid's stroller, but I can swing by there w/o it. i'll check out c-town too... fairway has beigel's, we used to get them when we lived on the UWS.

          Thanks for the tips everyone!

            If you're willing to eat a mass produced challah, check out Jack's 99 cent store on 32 bet 6th and 7th Ave.

                Yes, it's 99 cents. Available usually Thursday afternoons. There are two hashgachot OU and a chassidish one. They same brand all has challah rolls, onion rolls, and the large sesame circles. Not the tastiest challah, but for 99 cents...also good for french toast.
