smoked salmon bagel near 85th and broadway?

I can't seem to find a good smoked salmon after I moved to the upper west side, which is incredibly surprising to me. I like the ones at zabar, but they're all premade and can't be toasted, I asked. The only other places near me are hot and crusty, which was ok, but not great, and tal's bagel, which was also ok and not great.

I used to live by daniel's bagel which I loved in murray hill, very surprised that it's this hard to find this on the UWS.

        Another vote for Barney Greengrass. I prefer their salty lox over Russ & Daughter's.

          This is like saying, I'm on the corner of Broadway and Driggs in Brooklyn. Where should I go for a steak?

            Funny... also given that both establishments share a penchant for surly waiters.

            One drawback is that Barney Greengrass will be significantly more expensive than elsewhere. A bagel with lox and cream cheese is $14.

          Another vote for Barney Greengrass. For takeout there is also Murray's Sturgeon on Broadway between 89th and 90th. They have a small selection of bagels, but you can go across the street to Tal's for that.

          There's no better neighborhood for smoked salmon except, perhaps, the lower east side.
