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. 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.
