Bagels Upper West Side
Can anyone tell me whether Absolute Bagels or H&H bagels are certified kosher?
And, if they are not, which bagels available on UWS of Manhattan are?
You can check lists such as Shamash's for the status. H&H Bagels is on it but I don't see Absolute Bagels on their list. Since even recently opened places are represented on Shamash's list, I would say you that you would need to visit the store itself to ask to see the certificate on their wall.
To give a bit more detail, H&H bagels are under the Star-K, but not all the packaged goods are kosher. The bagels at Fairway (74th and Broadway) are also kosher, under Rav Marmorstein, who certifies many (but not all) of the baked goods there. Check the individual cases/signs by each product, as they mark things clearly.
Also check bagek basket, corner of 90th and Amsterdam.
