A big Thank You to Vicki for helping me find my smoked salmon nirvana! But wait . . . our food tour wasn’t over!

The icing on the cake was definitely a trip to The Bagel Store. This was a special trip for two reasons: A) I could start eating my lox right away on one of their fabulous bagels and B) The Bagel Store is home of the (now) world famous rainbow bagel. I like to think that Vicki discovered this now sacred rainbow bagel – because when we went there it wasn’t world famous just yet, rather it became an internet sensation just a few short weeks later.

The real jewel is their lox “counter” where you can sample ANYTHING! There was lemon-pepper lox, gravlax, pastrami lox, and the famous “David Burke Special” – which was fantastic! There was another special – salmon poke – thick chunks of the best smoked salmon, avocado, shallots, ginger and lemon – insanely delicious! Did I mention the prices are wholesale as well and that I ended up getting twice the amount of lox than I was expecting!?!

At ACME Smoked Fish the crowd was definitely local – older men chatting about how they have been coming for years, young co-workers looking for an excellent lunch and a Jewish couple debating how much lox and sturgeon to buy for Sunday brunch. We waited 45 minutes on a long line that snaked into a warehouse that was a feast for the eyes! Sitting on tables were their famous packages of sturgeon, lox, gravlax and various whitefish spreads all at wholesale prices!).
