Does anyone know where to buy a great bialy in West LA?

I've been buying bialys in New York for years. I fell in love with bialy's especially from Murry's Stergeon Shop, and have been ordering them from them for years, but it's just too expensive now, and I'd like to find them here on the West side, if possible. I frequent Santa Monica, Beverly Hlls, Venice, Culver City and even West Hollywood -- so if anyone has a suggestion I'd appreciate it.

Many thanks

  1. don't know how they stack up as I don't eat them that much, but you can get one from Olio Pizzeria.

    1. The Nosh in Beverly Hills does a very good bialy. I would guess (but have not tried) that Barney Greengrass at the top of Barney's does too.

      1. Nathans on the 1500 block of Westwood Blvd, east side has a good bialy and his fresh squeezed OJ is fabulous.

        1. I grew up eating bialys in NY. i've found decent ones here at the Beverly Hills Sunday Farmers Market. There's a bread/bagel stand and they sell bialys. I remember once i bought them towards the end of their shift and they gave me a free one or charged me less, it was something like that.

            I think that is the Rockenwagner stand. I have not had them but would bet they are very good.

              This is Ben from manhattan bread and bagel, the booth who has bialys. We have traditional and a flattened pretzel and if you let me know that chowhound sent you, I'll throw a few extra bagels your way.

            2. If Bagel Nosh is still open on Wilshire and 16th?? 17th?? in Santa Monica, I remember them having decent bialys, but it's been years.

                  Just got a bialy today at NYBD on Wilshire and 22nd in Santa Monica.

                  And it was good.
