The Great Bagel Smackdown

The contenders in plain, pumpernickel and salt

Last week I asked you to write in with your favorite bagels. Today, Our Man Sietsema and I sampled bagels from the places you mentioned, seeking the ultimate bagel.

We discovered one well-regarded place is actually selling fake bagels—fagels? We chewed away on the great and the mediocre, and Our Man let loose in his usual manner: "This one could be my kidney!"

Check in later today to find out which bagels prevailed in our blind taste test.
