The variety of bagels, schmears, and things like black and white cookies at Taste of New York Bagels & Deli is reminiscent of what you’d find at an NYC deli. So the “New York Bagels & Deli” part of the name isn’t wrong. As for the taste, ToNY gets their bagel dough shipped from New York and bakes them in-house every morning. This results in perfectly fine, but not great, bagels. They’re bready and chewy enough, but (depending on the batch) tough to the point where you could slather on some peanut butter and seeds and use it as a bird feeder. There isn’t much seating in this Lakeview bagel shop, so if you do find yourself here, get your order to go.
