And as a NY native, I thought they were great! They really put up a fight when eating them. The only thing was that I always feel like NY bagels have...a drop more salt? some kind of yeasty, pleasant aftertaste? I can't name it. But the bagels truly were delicious and we are SOO happy we read this board and went there~ so a big thank you to whoever mentioned the place!
The plain and onion were both delicious.
Haven't tried the bialy yet...can't wait!
