i sat shiva when the upper east side location closed. david's is by far the best bagel in the city. awesome spreads, killer sandwiches and shockingly friendly service. the stores don't offer much as far as decor or ambience, but hey, these are bagel shops. don't believe the hype about tal's, ess-a-bagel or hot 'n crusty -- david's beats them all.
Pros: best bagels, very reasonable price, friendly service
Cons: not enough locations!
