Chicago Bagel Authority

Chicago Bagel Authority
The motto of this bagel spot, whose original location is in Lincoln Park, is “Open early, open late, open minded.” Here are some examples of that last part: The men’s bathroom is labeled AREA 51; a poster of a “Tonya Harding Club” sandwich shows Harding attacking Nancy Kerrigan with a baton next to the words Turkey, Ham, Bacon, Colby and Swiss; and the Rice Krispies treat is made with Cocoa Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch (far superior cereals, in our humble opinion). There are also about a million types of bagel sandwiches and regular sandwiches, all of which are steamed: They’re fine, if unamusing.
