I've been a devout Ess-a-Bagel eater for the last 8 years and I can tell you exactly *why* I prefer Ess-a over H&H.
But what can you tell me about David's Bagels, Pick-a-Bagel, or any of the other bagel shops in my area (I live in Peter Cooper/Stuy Town)?
And please don't just say "it's the best bagel IMHO"? I'm looking for real reasons . . . like density, flavor, chewiness, etc.
Let the debates begin!
