Greg’s isn’t a new winner for this category, but after two decades, Greg Novik’s baby is still serving some awesome dough circles, packed with flavor and available in sweet and savory varieties. But what really puts Greg’s Bagels above the competition is the smoked fish. Greg’s has a chalkboard listing the flavor profile and smokiness level of each variety (Novik gets in new fish in all the time, though individual smokes sometimes get crossed off as he runs out). Those luscious pieces of salmon atop one of Greg’s fresh bagels with a light schmear of cream cheese are just about heaven.
