Greg's Bagels

Belvedere Square, 519 E. Belvedere Ave., (410) 323-9463

Posted 9/17/2008

We like that in this age of mounting foodie perfectionism, the bagels at Greg's sometimes look, well, less than perfect. Their roundness isn't Platonic, and their thickness varies a tad around the curve. The chocolate chips or Vidalia onion chunks are well distributed, but not always tidily so. It reminds us that the indefatigable Greg Novik and crew make the dozen or so varieties every day, with their own hands, and the care shows up in the rewarding flavor, which matters more than showcase-readiness in our book. Factor in the gourmet ingredients and the equally gourmet assortment of custom-imported smoked fish and homemade schmears and toppings, and Greg's is an imperfectly perfect thing.
