Gotham Bagels is a takeout-only spot that’s operating out of an Italian restaurant in Old Town. But don’t let all the Chianti bottles and the big wooden bar fool you, this place has excellent bagels. They’re big, soft, slightly chewy, and will shut up any East coaster who complains about Chicago’s bagel scene. From a perfect BEC sandwich to the lox with cream cheese, everything here is fantastic. Even the pickles.
Gotham Bagels started in Madison, and this is their first Chicago location. The menu has sandwiches, spreads, and extras like pickled vegetables and smoked salmon. Available for carryout and delivery.
