Despite walking by this place many times when I lived in the East Village, I wasn't tempted to try it until I saw it on an episode of Louie. Boy, was I glad that I watched that episode. Everything I've gotten here is delicious, from the chocolate babka to the gefilte fish, but their best item had to be the Scottish smoked salmon. If you're looking for a top notch bagel with lox in NYC, this is your destination!
