June 10, 2019 (NYC)– All bagels are not created equal. Just because a famous bagel store calls that seeded circle with the hole an “Everything Bagel”, doesn’t mean it isn’t an imposter. In fact, I would argue there are more imposters on the market today than ever. So how can you, the discerning consumer, be sure to get an authentic Everything Bagel?
The Problem Defined
You get a craving for an Everything Bagel and you walk into your local bagel store. How can you be certain the bagel you are purchasing is the very best? At Davidovich Bakery we understand that buying an Everything bagel, without a source of comparison, can make the answer to this question very difficult. So we decided to provide a short guide to determining whether your store’s Everything Bagel passes muster. We decided the surest way to illustrate the differences between an authentic, Davidovich, Everything Bagel and others was to do a side-by-side comparison.
The Bagels Were Chosen at Random
To set up this test we selected a Davidovich Everything bagel at random. This bagel was not hand selected for this purpose of showcasing our great bagels. It, simply, was chosen from an ordinary bin of Davidovich Everything Bagels at our Blue Moon Hotel location on the Lower East Side of NYC.
This Davidovich Everything Bagel was placed side-by-side with two bagels purchased at some reputable NYC Bagel Stores. These bagels, also, were not hand selected by us, but chosen, blindly, by the clerk in “arms length” transactions. Both stores were established NYC bagel stores with solid reputations. The stores had no idea we were conducting this test.
When we compared the seeding of these three bagel selections, the results were not even close. Davidovich’s double seeded, Everything bagel was generously covered with Poppy seeds, Sesame seeds, Onions, Salt, Garlic, and Oats. Bagel #1 had only a few seeds, that appeared accidental by contact. Bagel #2 was covered more generously on one side, only, with Sesame and Poppy Seeds.
How can these other Bagel Stores even dare to call their products “Everything Bagels”?
While we understand the cost of ingredients has gone up, we believe discerning customers expect more value from their bagel seller, not less, in these times. We also know that, historically, bagel stores always reduce the quality and quantity of seeds when they are looking to save a few pennies on their product. The hope is, that without a source of comparison, the average customer will not even notice.
Well, but-for our little experiment, these bagel store owners may have been correct. However, once these bagels are lined up side-by-side, the results are undeniable. Davidovich is the winner by unanimous decision.
In addition to seeding the test we went on to compare other salient factors that constitute bagel quality. The test went on to discuss such factors as texture, flour, density, and more.
Once again, the hands down favorite was the Davidovich Everything Bagel.

April 1, 2019-Davidovich Bakery news has learned that the MANHATTAN District Attorney’s Office has empaneled a Grand Jury to determine whether indictments should be handed down in the the St Louis Bagelgate scandal.
The facts surrounding the case involve the unapologetic slicing of bagels vertically, like a loaf of bread, in violation of bagel laws and standards. To make matters more egregious, the parties involved brashly posted photos of their crimes to social media.
While it was initially unclear whether any chargeable offense was committed, public outcry influenced the decision to seek indictments in this case late last week.
According to bagel expert Marc Fintz of Davidovich Bakery, “this is the greatest bagel scandal since Dunkin Donuts called its bagels Artisan. I expect the full resources of the NYPD and the Manhattan DA’s office to be used in pursuing these offenders. I wouldn’t be surprised if this goals Federal.”
Stay tuned for more developments in this case next April Fools’ Day.
February 21, 2018– In Episode 5 of Davidovich’s Bagel Talk Comedian Joe Pontillo sits down with Joseph V. Smith, president of the NYC Bagel and Sandwich Shop to discuss Franchising, NYC Bagels and More.
NYC Bagel & Sandwich Shop is a Franchise bringing authentic NYC water boiled, plank baked Davidovich Bagels to regions all over the United States.
Joe Smith discusses how he started the Franchise and his perspective on the nationwide explosion of interest in authentic, artisan NYC baked bagels. “Take a proven commodity – everyone’s favorite “light” meal, the bagel – and then take it one step further. Offer the original New York bagel, and create a cornerstone for a bagel franchise … without the typical franchise bagel taste.”
Bagel Talk, Davidovich Bakery’s Month talk show is taped at the Historic Essex Street Market on the Lower East Side of NY.
