New York is famous for a few cuisines. Since I grew up outside of Chicago, I don’t see the allure of the pizza as much as I do for the bagel. I really didn’t start eating bagels until college.
I understand now. New York bagels aren’t chewy. They’re a bit crispy on the outside and perfectly soft inside. The homemade cream cheese spreads are whipped and flavored expertly.
Where to get bagels: Murray’s Bagels– 242 8th Ave.
Where to get bread: Amy’s Bread– 75 9th Ave.
