Best Bagels Miami 2014 - Bagel Bar East
It seems fair to say Miami has the good weather but New York has the good bagels. Yet then there are occasions when it's simply gorgeous in the Big Apple and you can find the perfect bagel in the Magic City. For the latter, Miamians just need to head to Bagel Bar East — one of the few places around that still hand-rolls, boils, and bakes its bagel dough. You'd be hard-pressed to find a deli classic not listed on Bagel Bar's gargantuan menu, and everything is available for take-out. You can also purchase meat, fish, and prepared salads by the pound. If you like smoked fish, order a cream cheese bagel with Nova, whitefish, lox, surgeon, baked salmon, or sable ($12.99 to $15.99). For meat lovers, there's no shortage of melts, wraps, burgers, and sandwiches ($9.99 to $11.99). One example: The indulgent corned beef sandwich with pastrami and chopped liver ($10.99) comes with a pickle and either potato salad or coleslaw and tastes like your ideal blend of authenticity and awesomeness. Every day from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Bagel Bar East does Miami proud.
