Einstein Bros Bagels Restaurant Review

: Bagel fans come in two types: hardcore traditionalists, for whom only NYC's hand-pulled chewy rings (in non-frou frou flavors) make the grade, and those who favor enormous, pillowy bagels---the sort this chain serves, in roughly 20 flavors ranging from what the menu calls "classic" (plain, yes; honey whole-wheat, no) to sun-dried tomato, blueberry and chocolate chip. Admittedly, the soft centers do make for more easily managed sandwiches, and these are what most hungrier patrons order. The best tack to take here is to throw tradition out the window; ignore the just okay lox sandwich and try a Veg Out, stuffed generously with pignolia spread, vegetable cream cheese, and fresh vegetables (tomatoes, cukes, onions and sprouts)---definitely a California, not New York, concept, but surprisingly satisfying.
