Grocery store bagels need to be toasted.  Bagels from a bagel store are best raw.

Our Local Bagel Store's are so so, but at least they are fresh.  I like two kinds of high end bagels - both the official hardish NYC ones and the bigass bready oh so good ones.  We get the latter every week at work and man, are they good!  I seldom encounter the first kind and I miss them.

I have never had a fresh bagel from a bagel store.  I am taking it this is  something I need to do? 

I used to have an office next to a bagel shop and OMG still warm bagels fresh out of the oven are awesome.

Yeah man do it.

Do you boil them in baking soda?

No.  Should I?  Sodium bicarbonate seems safer than lye.  I do the Joy of Cooking recipe for bagels and add more WW and vital gluten for stretch.  They say sugar and salt in the water.  

Mine seem softer.  I never get that really hard crust.  They taste nice tho.

Toasted, served with smoked salmon, capers and creme cheese.  This is so I have something to eat when I throw the bagel away.  :) 

There is a little cafe near a local trail head my brother loves.  I get a bagel you noted but it also has thinly sliced red onion and a slab of tomato.  

I eat one whole 1/2 and then the good stuff off the other half & chuck the bagel.
