Banking on New York's novelty-food craze (see cronuts and ramen burgers), this takeout shop specializes in filled, bite-size bagel balls, known as "bantams." The 15-bagel menu ranges from deli classics (an everything bagel bite is filled with lox, tomato and red-onion cream cheese) to more whimsical varieties: the cheddar-egg Hangover is stuffed with bacon-cheddar cream cheese, while the Slice features pepperoni, Murray's Cheese mozzarella and marinara from John's Pizza.
