Best Schmear-leader

Rosen's Bagel Co.

Schmear is a delightful word, both noun and verb, and, with Rosen’s delicious variety of options, liberally schmearing schmear onto your choice of ring-shaped treat is rife with possibility. Try basil and lemon schmear on a poppy seed bagel. Caramelized shallot & bacon on rosemary sea salt. Plain on everything. Toast it, or don’t. Go sweet, savory, or salty. Have fun with it, whether ordering a bagel or bagel-based treat for breakfast, lunch, a snack, or even dinner. Rosen’s keeps it classic (no cinnamon raisin!) and keeps the classics interesting.
