New York vs. Montreal Bagels...Wait, NY Bagels Have Gold?
(Kitco News) - Hailing from Montreal, I am already involved in a heated debate over which city is home to the best bagels.
Is it Montreal's thinner, denser and sweeter rounds of goodness or New York City's iconic fatter, plumper ones?
Even though my heart lies with Montreal's version -- New York City may have just upped the ante with this bedazzled jewel of a bagel.
The Westin New York Hotel in Times Square is selling a $1,000 bagel topped with Alba white truffle cream cheese, goji berry-infused Riesling jelly, and gold leaf flakes. It will be available via room service and at the hotel's restaurant during breakfast hours.
And before you think, who in their right mind would spend $1,000 on a bagel? All proceeds go to charity!
