Like very strong allergy medication and Plan B, most great New York bagels are purchased over a counter. At Baz, you can order your bagel from a laminated menu at a table without having to wait an outrageous amount of time to get in (or having to pay Sadelle’s prices). Even if you’re not typically a pumpernickel person, you should get the pumpernickel everything bagel here. You’ll probably leave a pumpernickel convert. Baz also serves some good eggs, latkes, and salads if you’re not in the mood for a bread circle. And if you’d rather get your bagel to-go than have a full meal here, there’s a counter up front where you can do just that.
