This bagel is excellent: dark brown and incredibly crisp with just the right level of microblistering. Pro tip: you can't just walk in and get a bagel. Order at least a dozen and call 48 hours in advance to place a personal order and pick them up fresh.
Levy's reminds me most often bagel shops back home in NYC with its warm smell of malt and dried garlic and its wire baskets of fresh-baked bagels behind the counter. No frills. Just good, straight-forward, nicely sweet and doughy, crisp-crusted bagels.
The everything bagel is kick-ass with its slew of flavors and full 360 degree coverage with best-in-class adhesion. You can be damn sure that every chewy-crisp bite is gonna be coated with sesame, poppy, garlic, onion, and caraway.
