If you're heading uptown, a morning stop at this cash-only hole-in-the-wall will introduce a bagel that may cause you to reevaluate the mere bread-rolls you previously considered to be of bagel quality. It would be easy to miss without the line snaking out the door, but fret not, because it moves quickly. These rings of delight manage the perfect balance of light and dense, chewy and crispy-crusted, with a texture and flavor that's delicious on its own but next-level when paired with the assortment of cream cheeses, meats, and toppings they offer. If you've got the suitcase space, stop in on the last day of your visit and pick up a dozen to bring home if you have mortal enemies you've been meaning to win over.
