    I've been a bialy eater my entire life, which at this point it getting to be a fairly long time. Bagels are fine, I like them, but a toasted bialy, yes I toast bialys, with lox, cream cheese, tomato and red onion is king in my book. Even without the lox its a damn good sandwich.

    I have no problem freezing bialys, cut them in half soon as I get home, freeze 4-5 to a pack, perfect cruch/flavor after a spin in the toaster. I always, 99% of the time, go to the Touhy NYBB. If I want bagels I go to Kaufman's, love the corn rye bagels, adore Kaufman's corn rye bread. Plus I go to Kaufman's every Saint Paddy's day for green bagels, a 20-year tradition.

    Yes, JB's Deli is fine, they were out of bialys last week, and the wait/disorganization can be annoying. But still, its a 'real' deli, which is by nature quirky, and the creamed herring, which Jazzfood turned me onto, is terrific. JB's cuts their pastrami too finely, it turns a little mushy, not my style. At least its not a salt bomb like the thin sliced mulch at AP Deli.

    FYI the Des Plaines outlet only bakes bagels -- any other breads are prepackaged from elsewhere.

    I'm sure this is not Kosher, but I'm a Unitarian:
    My favorite vendor mish mosh is a griddled NYBB bialy Reuben made with pastrami from Kaufman's. Option #2 is using a pumpernickel bagel from Kaufman's for a 50/50 corned beef and pastrami mixed Reuben.

    For the uninitiated, a Reuben, with the combination of either corned beef or pastrami, and swiss cheese, is never kosher.

    Meat and cheese never mix on a kosher dish.

    My friend who lives Kosher advised she had a plant-based burger with cheese as work around.

    Or imitation cheese, but my daughter-in-law prefers real cheese, fake meat.
