the earl’s challenge: #82 — sturgeon and eggs [at “Barney Greengrass”]

7 Jul

Barney Greengrass

when i tackled this ‘wich, i’d been in nyc for more than half a year, and yet i had had only about a half-dozen bagels. for a budding foodie like me who lives in the bagel capital of the western world, that is borderline criminal. what better way to rectify the error of my ways than by hitting up legendary barney greengrass, a century-old new york institution? this bagel ‘wich is filled with fried eggs that are stuffed with pieces of smoked sturgeon. i developed a love for smoked fish from my father, whose greatest culinary delight was receiving and enjoying smoked salmon from relatives in the pacific northwest. i thought about my father as i savored this ‘wich, and i vowed to take him to barney greengrass if he ever makes his way to this fair city.
