I know this topic was dealt with a while ago, but I think it needs to be re-discussed. I'm always on the lookout to update what I thought was "the best" so this is a new discovery. I hosted a brunch a few Sundays ago and my son picked up the bagels. They were the best I ever tasted and were from Pressers on Avenue M in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. Pressers is a bakery with a special section just for bagels. I hope others will try them and let me know what they think. A better bagel is not to be found (at least in Brooklyn).
