NORWALK, Conn. -- It’s impossible to live here and not have a bagel opinion. The New York area, as everyone knows, is the bagel capital of the world. And yes, it’s worth waiting in line on a Sunday morning to get one of these doughy wonders fresh out of the oven. Toasting, as a bagel purist knows, is not necessary when you buy the very best.

Who Has The Best Bagels In Fairfield County?

  • Bagelman, Danbury, Brookfield:
  • Bagel Crossing, Bethel
  • Pauli's Deli and Bagels, Norwalk
  • Liz Sue Bagels, Stamford
  • Upper Crust Bagel Co., Old Greenwich

We asked for your favorites and now have five contestants in the running. Each is being profiled this week as part of our ongoing DVlicious contest. Here’s the lowdown on one who made the cut.

Pauli’s Deli & Bagels, 205 Main St., Norwalk, (203) 840-0550

What Makes Them Bagelicious: With its expansive menu, Pauli’s is an old-fashioned Greek deli where you can both satisfy your most sinful urges for hot pastrami or chicken souvlaki and assuage your guilt with gluten-free bagels slathered with low-fat cream cheese. (Celiacs note: They even have a dedicated toaster for gluten-free goodies.) Along with the standard lox, Pauli’s spreads also come in a health-conscious hummus (a Middle-Eastern paste made of chickpeas, sesame seeds, olive oil, lemon, and garlic) and tofu (soybean curd used in Asian and vegetarian cooking).

Crazy Flavors: Twenty varieties of bagels, including pumpernickel, sesame, poppy, whole wheat, and cinnamon raisin. Rainbow bagels put smiles on both the kiddies’ and grown-ups’ faces.

Reminder: The contest ends Monday, April 25 at 5 p.m. You can vote multiple times, albeit once per day.
