Did you see how good I was? I almost made an “Electric Boogaloo” reference in the header, but I restrained myself.
Anyways, the bagel question really brought out the comments, so I thought it would be worthwhile to share the reader’s consensus. Brooklyn Bagels in Courthouse seems to be the almost universal favorite, but So’s Your Mom and Bethesda Bagels also got some significant love. I think that fairly settles it: the best bagels in DC are actually in Arlington. Now I’ve got to get over to Brooklyn Bagels to see for myself. I feel that this has been a useful exercise and one that I must repeat for all of the other major food groups. Well done, readers!
