H&H Bagels has been making bagels in Manhattan since 1972, and, as far as we know, it’s the only bagel place mentioned in both Seinfeld and Sex & The City. Carrie and George aside, these rotund bagels follow the textbook New York style. Each one is swirled with a dark, caramelized sheen, and is loaded with tiny air holes where the gluten has formed. The sparsely-seasoned exterior makes for a hearty chew while the dough stays soft and malleable. Plus, there’s an excessive amount of cream cheese slathered in between the two halves. H&H Bagels has locations on the Upper West Side an Upper East Side, in case you ever need to locate your nearest one like it’s an exit window on an airplane.
