It’s not controversial to say that Ess-A-Bagel serves the best bagels in Midtown. People around here seem to agree, as evidenced by the lines that stretch out the front door. But the lines move fast, and while you’re waiting you can figure out your order - we like their signature one with whitefish salad and nova. Have one of these for breakfast and you probably won’t be starving at 11:29am like usual.
