Black Seed Bagels Restaurant Review

: Ever since Mile End opened in Brooklyn in January 2010, the Big Apple has been on a Montreal bagel craze. More dense, smaller, and with a vaguely sweet taste (thanks to being boiled in a blend of honey and water), the bagels don’t fill you up like their New York siblings. Black Seed makes a nearly perfect north-of-the-border bagel, which gives a nod to Gotham with a slight saltiness, creating a more complex-tasting bagel. And if you want something other than mere plain cream cheese, this NoLIta bagelry offers a lot more: from caviar and watermelon radish to eggs, cheese and bacon.
