Somehow i missed replying the first time around: my definition of "bialy" is it's a virgin bagel! (with onions on the membrane....)

Rosenfeld's has no tables and barely enough space to stand and get your order. There are a few benches around there.

@kfield, Best place in Boston is Rosenfeld's in Newton Centre. I do need to try Katz Bagels in Chelsea one of these days.

@tb100

Funny you should say that. I was born in NYC and moved to Massachusetts when I was 13. I do think there are a few places on Boston where you can get a good bagel and there are places in NYC where the bagels are not so good.

I do admit that when it comes to food, I do revert back when I cross the border. But only on food. I will never again root for a NYC sports team.

But in the reverse, I refuse to call that Manhattan red clam soup a chowder. Being from New England, I know that chowder is white by definition.

As for breaking the bagel hole with your teeth, that's allowed.

I've never had a really good bagel in California, but the deli in LA is excellent. See My tour of LA delicatessens.

MeasurementBlues, do you live in New York City?

MeasurementBlues, do you live in New York City? This is definitely a NYC thing. My uncle lived in Massachusetts and was fine, but the moment he crossed the border into NYC he became a New Yorker. The transformation was immediate and complete. It is as though he's lived there his whole life.

Now our California bagels aren't good enough for him. (In fact, I think he refuses to even call them bagels).

So what happens when you bite into the bagel? Is it sacrilege against the holy (wholly, hole-y?) bagel to destroy its circle with your teeth?

@MeasurementBlues: ...by "slicing" I meant that you slice the bagel into, well slices. Each half must continat a cimplete hole. If you "cut a bagel in half" you end up with two half circles.

Ah -- now I understand -- I must admit that your earlier ramblings had left me baffled, bewildered, and confused

@Max wrote Wake Up & Smell the Bagels and there appears to be some question as to the definition of bagel slicing.

@Antedeluvian wrote:

I don't think Martin was compaining about slicing the bagel in the horizontal plane, leaving the hole as a whole(??). I am sure he was maintaing that bagel purity is compromiised by slicing it vertically after slicing it horizontally.

@Antedeluvian is correct, by "slicing" I meant that you slice the bagel into, well slices. Each half must continat a cimplete hole. If you "cut a bagel in half" you end up with two half circles. That is a descration of the sacred bagel and, well, there ought to be a law.

Culinary masterpiece? You mean culinary disaster!

just that adding bacon (perhaps with a few chives or green onions) on top of the cream cheese transforms a humble bagel into a culinary masterpiece ... I'm drooling just thinking about it (or maybe I'm just drooling)
