Tal Bagels

2446 Broadway, New York, NY - (212) 712-0171
When you sink your teeth into a warm Tal Bagel, its outside skin audibly crunches. Beneath the skin, faintly sour dough is dense enough to provide a real chew. Good as Tal Bagels are hot from the store, when you take some home and slice them later in the day or even the next morning, they retain their tightly packed character.

You have your choice from among seventeen different spreads to adorn your bagel.

Tal is more than a bagel shop.  At this 1st Avenue outpost, there is an extensive appetizing counter (appetizing is a NYC noun that refers to things like smoked fish, cream cheese spreads, egg salad, chopped liver, olives... ).

There are a few Tals around town.  This one is on 1st Avenue between 53rd and 54th.

The word
"The word "appeetizing" under Tal Bagel's name does indeed describe the food. But it is also the proper Jewish name for the kind of deli that sells breads, baked goods, and smoked fish."
