Steve took the time to sit and email in a lengthy diatribe on the "outrageous" prices of bagels on the Upper East Side and he's taken particular aim at Tals Bagels on 86th:
"Tals are the most expensive bagels on the UES, 1.20 each (compare to H and H East on 80/1 @1.10 each). But what truly piqued me (hence this e-mail), was that they (Tals) charge an outrageous 1.95 for a bagel w/butter! I think HandH for example charges 1.35. Plus they (Tals) are the only bagel store I've ever seen that doesn't toast bagels. At least the bagels are very good."
$1.95 the most expensive?
