    I agree, I am not sure I would classify it as a bagel, but I have to be honest when you live overseas, at that moment you would classify it as a bagel and thank him for making them.:rolleyes:

    Pudge Bros Pizza in Colorado was as good or better than any pizza I ever had and I am from Phila. They did something to the sauce, it is not as good anymore. Back in the 90's when I lived in Denver, there was no better. Abo's is pretty good here n Denver, Anthony's is pretty much like a NY pizza.
    Most parts of the country have terrible pizza or corporate pizza like Dominoes, Papa John's (yuk), and Pizza Hut.

    New Haven: Pizza and Bagels

    Lender's bagels may be better than they once were, which was inedible, but I doubt I'll try another. By the way, dont ever be overheard by a New Yorker calling it a "baggle". The pronunciation is "BAY-gel". What you shmear on it is your business.

    The Washington Post article link provided by Bruno indicated Murray Lender was born in New Haven. This probably evens out the scale for that city. New Haven is the home of the best pizza I've had, namely the pepperoni-mushroom pizza at Frank Pepe's Pizzeria on Wooster Street. It's worth a detour from the misery of I-95. On the other hand, some people swear by Sally's Apizza, which is about 50 yards from Pepe's.

    If you do go to either place, there may be a line out front, so leave some extra time.

    Pepe's or Sally's on Wooster. :thumb: Worth the wait after a long hockey game. The line can be very long. Parking can be a problem if you don't get there very very early. Philadelphia doesn't even know what the real stuff tastes like although the rest of us don't know what a real Cheese Steak tastes like.

    We didn't even have a Bagel Shop in our town until 10 years ago...Lenders was all I knew of.. I loved them growing up... I never ate a real Bagel before the local shop opened, ..and they are from the Bronx(which makes them legit)... Lender's is to bagels as Spagettio's is to pasta... :biggrin:
