GOTHAM BAGELS - CHICAGO
The Gold Coast's Gotham Bagels, which opened mid-2020, is giving the Near Northside what it deserves: some of the best bagels you will find anywhere. Made with a strong commitment to the old ways and quality ingredients, Gotham Bagels may well be serving the finest examples of the bagel-maker’s art in the city of Chicago.
You can buy a dozen bagels to go, of course, and at Gotham Bagels they come in the traditional ways: Everything, Sesame, Plain, Poppy, Salt, Super Egg Everything, Egg, and Cinnamon Raisin. Alas, you will not find a blueberry bagel, or a chocolate chip bagel or any of that frou-frou stuff your great aunt and kids might love. These are bagels for those who love bagels; they’re the real thing. If you, too, are real, you will like them.
Open for breakfast and lunch (and now accepting only online ordering; thanks again, Covid-19), Gotham Bagels has the kind of sandwich that when you eat, you will know you’ve just had a hearty breakfast or lunch: big, substantial, and filled with goodness.
