NY Bagel

Don’t take our word for it—any Jew or New Yorker can tell you the best bagel in Chicago is not in Chicago. It’s in Lincolnwood, at a nondescript strip mall just off I-94. This place never closes, doesn’t have tables and until recently, didn’t accept plastic. Which is why if you’re looking for us, we’ll be in our car in the parking lot, inhaling a bagel sandwich with nova lox and clutching a bag of still-warm salt-and-poppy and sesame bagels for later.

I don't claim to be a Jew or a New Yorker (or much of a bagel expert at all really), but this place was great. My husband and I were actually getting our car fixed down the road and sort of just wandered into this bagel happy place. We sampled quite a few bagels, plus I got the turkey pastrami with chive cream cheese (amazing!). Highly recommend!
