  1. I asked this question earlier this year and got a score of responses. There's a line in the sand drawn by New Yorkers who love their favorites. When in New York two weeks ago, I could not get to any of the bagel places recommended. So I settled for a couple of bagels from Carnegie Deli. Forgettable. Hope you have better luck.

    1. re: RedTop

      Why buy a bagel steps (and hours) removed from the originating bakery? Can't promise "great" but get one while still warm at most of the places which are usually recommended in NYC and you will be well satisfied with the experience.

    2. Might have to step into parts of Brooklyn for a really great bagel. I don't remember ever having a GREAT bagel anywhere in the city.
