Time Out says
Brothers Jason and Mark Scott adopted their bagel recipe from their late great grandmother. Their version uses a sourdough starter, a touch meant to marry their East Coast roots (they're originally from Rhode Island) and their West Coast home. Though Authentic Bagels are distributed to 30-something cafés and restaurants, they're best when snagged fresh from the oven at the brothers' small shop. Twelve kinds are available, as well as flavored cream cheeses, hummus and house-made whitefish salad. Regulars swear by the sizable sandwiches, which flaunt unusual flavor combinations: The Jamboree, for example, is a garlic bagel topped with vegetable cream cheese, onion jam, jalapeno jam and bacon, while the Afternoon Delight is a salt bagel slathered with jalapeño cream cheese and strawberry jam.
