Steven Jenkens, the food purveyor at Fairway, the incomparable New York supermarket, states that, “Anyone who tells you that H & H bagels are their favorite has no business having an opinion.” This is the best bagel in town and is hand-made on the premises. Absolute Bagels is worth the wait for one right out of the oven. The building and interior are not much to look at, so just look past it to have a true New York experience.
