Soho: Although my favorite bagel place was once Murray Bagels, it has now become Blackseed. The bagels are a tad smaller, but so much better. The staff comes in at 4 am to start baking a range of flavors including salt, sesame and everything. With a small menu of about 10-15 different sandwiches, they make only enough for each day, allowing them to close at 4 pm. 170 ELIZABETH ST, NEW YORK, NY 10012 OPEN: 7AM-4PM, 7 DAYS A WEEK
New York-Style Bagel Recipe - "This bagel recipe is not only one of the best bagel recipes that I’ve tried, but it doesn’t require a rocket scientist (sorry rocket scientists reading this… I like the saying!) to make the recipe. The bagels are awesome fresh out of the oven, but when they’re toasted… Oh, my! Can we just say that you’ll be making this recipe time and time again?"
