everything they say about the bagels is true...it's the water among other things..unlike some places out west that basically serve you a hamburger bun with a hole in the middle...

How much better are bagels in NYC? I basically can't even eat SF bagels at this point in my life. I had a Noah's bagel the other day for the first time since high school and I threw half of it out. So gross.

I had never had a bagel, it turns out, til I moved here. I don't know what kind of magic is in the water that makes them so fucking good, but those things are like little rounds of nirvana.

Souvlaki. Why not souvlaki? You must!

(PS, Nashville actually had a very good bagel place for years and years, called Nashville Bagel--it was a guy from New York who played violin that ran it. Was in the shopping center with Zola (?) and then moved to a stand alone building across the street from Houstons. He died maybe in the late 80s. He lived in our building, at the end of the hall from us. I don't think the bagel store is still there.)
