I don't think it's a coincidence that in tennis, "zero" is known as "love" and to go 6-0 in a set is to "bagel." Basically, bagels = love. The source of my love is Murray's Bagels, Greenwich Village location. Say what you will (as we New Yorkers are wont to do), but Murray's has the best bagels in the city. They are everything that a traditional bagel shop should be. They won't sell you on a rainbow bagel. They wouldn't even toast bagels until 2015! Instead, they serve up a bagel that doesn't even need cream cheese, or whatever your topping of choice is. At Murray's, the bagels have a stiff, but not crunchy crust and a soft, well bubbled interior that is never doughy. From spreads to meats, lox to veggies, you can make your bagel come to life however you want. The next time you need a bagel and schmear, trust a NYer – this is where you want to be.
