    Russ and Daughters , may not have the best bagels but they have over five varieties of lox!!! and three types of cream cheese, some with chives and some with caviar, big bagels with no holes are commercial! the best bagel places are still in Brooklyn, and the best of the best are traditionally open 24 hours! you missed out on Zabars,

    My family, relatives, friends and Scandinavian community all make open-faced sandwiches with gravlox. It's similar to sushi in that the sandwiches are made in so many ways and are arranged as "art". Adding a second think layer of bread (bagel) dilutes the taste of the lox and other ingredients.
