We finally got to Feldman's for lunch on Saturday. It was really great. I had a sesame bagel with egg and cheese and a matzo ball soup. My husband had an everything with egg and cheese. We also bought a dozen everything to take home.
My husband grew up on Long Island, and hasn't found bagels made the way they were when he grew up. They just haven't been around here. So he's been making do with bagels from Price Chopper.
Obviously the Feldman's bagels would be better than the ones at PC on the same day. The real test was how would they be after being toasted two days later. The answer is "far better than the PC bagels."
The soup was brilliant. Lovely flavor from root vegetables, beautiful clear broth, and fluffy matzo balls. Even though it was a hot, sunny day, I am very glad I ordered it. They have several sorts of sandwiches in the offing, too, and we'll be going there once a month for lunch and to get a buncha bagels. So I expect I'll be able try some of the other sandwiches, too. I was very pleased with my egg and cheese, but it's hard to go wrong with a basic egg and cheese. :)
Definitely the best NY style bagels in the area. Also, they have bialys. :) Just give them a go. See whatcha think! :)
