New York food tour - Brooklyn bagel

Day 6 started with a walk across Brooklyn Bridge. They say walking across Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most romantic things you can do and the view is said to turn a platonic relationship into more.

Surrounded by large groups of school kids it wasn't romantic exactly but the view was just beautiful. The iconic locks have been removed to preserve this landmark but you could still see some instances of them - an icon of love for the city.

Over the bridge in Brooklyn we walked along Brooklyn Heights before venturing to find the perfect bagel. I saved my bagel eating until Brooklyn and it was worth it.

Frankel’s Delicatessen & Appetizing in Greenpoint, Brooklyn is a relatively new Jewish deli - with bagels, smoked fish and cold drinks this place was the iconic Jewish bakery I was looking for. Run by two brothers, it has neon signs, white painted walls, classic Jewish food and a relaxed, welcoming vibe.

The everything bagel was soft, slightly chewy and the perfect balance of salt and garlic. The egg omelette was soft and silky and the pepper complemented the bagel, as did the chilli sauce served on the side offered in a cute squeeze bottle.

We tried to go to Brooklyn Brewery however it didn’t open until 6pm so we had to skip it.

We finished the day with an off broadway show - Avenue Q. As soon as it started and we saw a muppet held by an actor, we were a little cynical. However within 5 minutes the laugher took over. It was an amazing show and one i’d recommend!
