Out of the Blue

Today is National Pizza Day and National Bagel Day! Sadly there do not seem to be international versions of either "holiday." As a native New Yorker I am compelled to point out these two foods are basically New York City's claim to culinary fame. The perception that NYC is the best area in the country for each used to seem like a regional prejudice, but somewhere along the way people started attributing it to the water. On the other hand, this article on bagels debunks the water theory, but confusingly, this article on pizza from the same site lends credence to it, so go figure. PUR and Food & Wine each tackle this question with mixed messages as well. I don't know the answer, but the fact that one California pizzeria imports their water from New York seems to support the water theory. According to these reports, they did an experiment and found their customers preferred the pizza made with New York water by a startling nine to one ratio.

“It costs $482.79 to get a decent pizza in San Francisco — $17 for the pie, $85 for cab fare, and $378.80 for the flight to New York.”

I will devour a new york bagel for lunch in honor of the holiday. My stomach says it isn't a good day for pizza, sorry.

I really only enjoy sourdough so no bagels. Doubling my pizza intake to compensate is no problem!

Don't care about Dolores after season 2, so meh. I'm 6 episodes in Sex Education, pretty damn funny.

It's a shame cream cheese is so unhealthy for you. I usually put cottage cheese on mine.

All the zah I've had in NYC was certainly never better than anywhere else I've had it. The only time were talking serious zah is wood-fired oven zah. There's a couple of places here that do authentic Neapolitan pizza here and it's head and shoulders above the chain stuff. Just wish it was easier to find.

As for bagels I've personally always enjoyed Montreal style bagels over New York style bagels. Same thing, there's a few places that do them here and do them well but not enough of them around so you have to put in effort to go get them. Actually considered opening a Montreal bagel place once.
