2016 Winner: Better Bagels


Even as Bostonians defend our sports teams to competitive NYC pals, we must capitulate when it comes to who has the better bagels. Except now we have, well, Better Bagels: Sam Harden and James Grimes’ addictive hand-rolled, slow-fermented carb treasures served at Somerville’s 7ate9 Bakery, restaurants like just-opened Saltie Girl and ongoing pop-ups (including appearances at Coppa). We’ll happily spend our dough there until Better launches a brick-and-mortar location.
