My Kingdom For A Good Bagel!

I don't get it. Where there are Italian Americans, there's supposed to be good Pizza. Where there are Jews, there's supposed to be good Bagels. (Not to mention good Chinese food). But since I crossed the Hudson some 13 years ago, I've found exactly one bagel joint in New Jersey that's any good at all, and that's Bagel Bin in Bernardsville. If you can disregard the fact that the proprietors are nastier than a cross between a rattle snake and Seinfeld's soup nazi , these are the only decent bagels I've found in the garden state. Remember, mind you, that I'm using H&H Bagels in NYC as the gold standard, and that I'm not interested in the usual NJ cake style "Wonder Bread with a skull cap" bagels that are everywhere. Does anyone have a recommendation for another H&H style, chewy bagel this side of the Hudson?
