Always being iso a satisfying bagel and lox, tried Bagels by Us on Arlington.
High marks for bagels, although chose to toast the two plain bagels. H&H bagels, I believe. As usual, lox=nova, and bad nova in this case. Tastes of brine, fake pink color, and leathery texture. Nice sandwich construction, with generous amounts of salmon. Had with onions and capers.
Pleasantly surprised that they were selling whitefish and chopped liver salads, but at outrageous prices. Didnt buy either.
Service so slow and disorganized, but friendly.
The search will continue.
