For reasons that can only be attributed to a collective bout of madness, Warsaw has traditionally turned its back on the sacred bagel – the city’s excuse, however, can’t really be faulted: let’s face it, what we’ve had so far just hasn’t been that good. But excuses aren’t going to cut it anymore, not with the arrival of Ben Bagel. Harking to the area’s not-too-distant hipster past, discover a Williamsburg-style hole-in-the-wall that’s all parquet, brickwork and flashes of groovy neon. It looks cool, and you’re going to linger longer for all-natural, non-dairy piping hot bagels stuffed with unlikely exotica such as kimchi, bacon, cheddar, roasted onions and aioli sauce. It’s sticky, messy and flawlessly brilliant. NYC has never felt closer.
