NFT: Need NYC Bagel Help

Larry in Pencilvania : 2/9/2019 6:40 pm
I have a friend who is going to the city next week on President's Day weekends and will be staying near the UN on E 53rd & Lexington Ave and is willing to pick up some bagels to bring back to Philly for me. What is a good spot in that area? No chains, no Manhattan Bagels, the real deal.

Thanks in advance...LiP
Plenty of choices

On First Ave near 54th Street is Tal Bagels. On Third Ave in the area is Essa bagel. Both are very good. Is it just bagels youíre getting, or appetizing (lox, white fish, etc) as well?
Just bagels

I think youíll do fine with either of these. Lived in that neighborhood for several years. Those two spots were weekend staples.
Essa is close

favorite bagels are an underrated gem (David's) but their spreads are meh. Tompkins Square is probably my overall fave.
Zucker's is not too far

That may be your best option
Thanks all for the recommendations

106 and Broadway? The guy said near the UN.

Tal Bagel's is a chain, rock solid though.

That place took a HUGE nosedive. 10 years ago I would agree, but lately it's been shit.
