Ess-A-Bagel Restaurant Review

: Many bagel aficionados argue that Ess-a makes the best bagels in New York. We're inclined to agree---except for when, once in awhile, we get one that isn't quite baked through. Cut and rolled by hand, their bagels are low in salt and preservative- and sugar-free. They're also huge. Flavors run the usual gamut, as do the many cream-cheese spreads. They also make bagel sandwiches galore, and, at the midtown shop, serve specialty coffee drinks. Ess-A-Bagel's bagels are kosher.
