Returning to the bagel-making days of his high-school years, Christopher Pugliese, an eight-year vet of Sushi Samba, opens this 25-seat East Village café. Sip Stumptown coffee and watch bakers boil rings of dough in an open kitchen. The menu includes homemade lox and regular bagels, plus "old school" versions—smaller, chewier rounds made without the dough conditioners that lend latter-day bagels their fluffiness.

Tompkins Square Bagel makes great sandwiches, on bagels. They are creative toppings and fun mixes, and it's great to try something new there. Their whitefish is really, really good. The bagels by themselves aren't the best in the city, and it's ALWAYS a mob scene on weekends. Don't forget - cash only.
