Best Bagels

Where can I find the best bagels in DC? I'm talking like real New York bagels.

    1. In DC proper, no idea; in Montgomery County, Bethesda Bagels and Goldberg's. All relative, though; haven't found anything as good as NY bagels in the DC area.

          There's a Bethesda Bagels in Dupont, on Connecticut Ave. It's pretty great, though the bagels are suspiciously large.

        2. There used to be a Georgetown Bagel on M Street in Georgetown under a hardware store sign. In Montgomery County I really the Itzey's bagels.

          1. I lived in NYC for 10 years and Bethesda Bagels is the one!

            1. In my opinion it's not even close. Wegman's.

                I'm not going to put Wegmans bagels on any sort of pedestal, but they are good for this area. They have bialys and a good variety of cream cheeses, too. Also, nice smoked fishes and even lox "flakes" for the budget-conscious. 8<D
