Someone mentioned in another thread that bagels in the Boston area are not as good as the ones sold at NY delis.
I agree with this. Why do you think that it's not possible to duplicate NY bagels in New England? This is a mystery to me. I live on the north shore and buy bagels at Bagel World in Danvers/Peabody (near the Sylvan Street Grill). These,so far are the best that I have found. Any other suggestions in this area?
