Tony Merevick is Cities News Editor at Thrillist and, at this point in his obsession with bagels, should just launch a petition to designate the delicious rings of dough as its own food group. Follow him on Twitter @tonymerevick.
Black Seed subscribes to the Montreal school of bagel-making, meaning its bagels, which are smaller than the quintessential New York ones, are rolled by hand, boiled in honey water, then baked in a wood-fired oven. Sandwiches made with a variety of smoked fishes and speciality spreads -- like the house-cured beet lox number with horseradish cream cheese -- continuously draw weekend crowds in search of their morning bagel fix.
