Don’t go to Popup Bagels expecting them to cut your bagel in half and fill it with things like lox, capers, and cream cheese. This Village spot has no seating and only sells bulk orders with schmear on the side—but they do make some of the best bagels in the city, which is impressive considering they started out as a backyard popup in Connecticut. These blistered beauties are shaped and baked fresh throughout the day, right behind the counter, and there's no reason to turn them into sandwiches when the best way to consume one is to tear it apart with your hands, dip it in schmear, and eat it right on the sidewalk while it’s still hot. Pre-order a dozen bagels online, or wait in line to walk in for a bag of three or six.
