Everything bagel spice is suddenly everywhere in NYC

Alyson Penn

New Yorkers love their everything bagels. Well, we really just love bagels, period. But since we can pretty much get whatever we want, whenever we want it in our five boroughs, why wouldn't we crave the bagel titled, "Everything"? Traditionally, this seedy carb is topped with some combination of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic, onion and salt. And this particular combo of flavors has spread beyond the breakfast and brunch favorite to cocktails, spaghetti and, of course, avocado toast.

Yes, "everything" spice has suddenly become available practically everywhere in New York—here are seven unusual places where you can find it.

This cocktail was inspired by a classic Manhattan breakfast. The drink includes rye whiskey, coffee-and-orange-infused vermouth and a plastic pillow filled with the scent of everything bagels, that is then opened table side.
