Bagels come to the Irish Channel!
I happily discovered a new bagel place in the 'hood- I didn't even know about it until the day it opened. Excitement! I love bagels and I have been on the hunt for a good bacon-egg-cheese bagel sandwich since we moved here. (I'm picky about the egg- it needs to be actually fried, not scrambled or microwaved.)
I am happy to announce that Artz Bagelz on Magazine Street has good bagels. I mean, I'm not like a NY Bagel snob so authenticity is not key for me- but this had a nice chew on the crust, wasn't too hard or too soft, and were offered in generally normal non-crazy flavors.
We got plain, sesame, poppy, everything, asiago (which is definitely non-traditional) and honey wheat. Also picked up a pint of Creole Veggie cream cheese. Those we took home for later, and I got myself a lovely bacon egg and cheese sandwich on a sesame bagel. It took a while, because it was cooked to order and done so perfectly!
They also have some good looking sandwiches.
I'm psyched that they've come to town, and in my neighborhood.
