In NYC I was reunited with the Ess-a-Bagel. It did not disappoint. Sadly It wasn’t really practical to get a dozen bagels to go as there was still plenty of the day left (and a dozen bagels is surprisingly heavy). Also we were going to Boston before the end of our trip. Anyway, it was crispy and chewy, the lox tasted great and it was everything I remembered. Now I have to stop talking about it and looking at that photo because I’m making myself hungry.

We shall meet again.
