The success of owner Corey Kaplan's chain relies on its kettle-boiled bagels: They're just chewy enough, just dense enough and just sweet enough to give New Yorkers a run for their money. But just in case the bagel sandwiches (such as the classic with Nova lox, capers, cucumbers, tomato and red onion) and deli sandwiches (e.g., corned beef) don't cut it, this third location also offers New York–style pizza (we like the "Bianca" with ricotta more than the sliced fennel sausage, though both were underbaked). Each slice is the size of half a pizza and costs $4.44; ours also came with a reminder to "Stay beautiful!"
