The Bagel never goes away…it just moves locations. In its current spot (the third since 1950) the deli manages to bring a little Jewish curmudgeonliness to Boystown. So when you’re at the counter ordering your potato knish or sitting in one of the booths dipping a fluffy roll into the magnificent, housemade chicken soup, expect to have a brusque comment or two thrown your way. After all, the Bagel hasn’t survived all these years by being nice.
