A small backstory...on coming out of Pepe's many years ago, my father announced to the waiting crowd: 'BEST pizza I've had in 76 years'.

I felt that way (although not 76 yet) after biting into a Bagelworks bagel. Bagelworks is at 65th and 1st Ave., I believe, in Manhattan and until then I had never felt rhapsodic about a bagel.

How to describe it...it's not doughy, although it's boiled. It's not too high, not too low, but just right. It's crunchy on the outside and delicious on the inside. The 'everything' is chock full of everything and my very favorite is the flat bagel.

On trying out yet another bagel (albeit stale, although I have frozen Bagelworks and they are still delish when eaten weeks later) this morning from a place on Rte. 119 in Greenburgh, and being sorely disappointed, I thought of this place!

If you haven't been to Bagelworks, please go! And, if you know of a bagel similar to theirs, or IOW from where is the best bagel you've ever had, I would greatly appreciate the info. TYIA.
