Raven eating a bagel

Mary Ellen spotted a raven eating a bagel in West Roxbury yesterday. No word where the bagel's from, but since it's West Roxbury, Local 138 would be a good caw.

The state of the Boston bagel is strong, one (overly?) enthusiastic writer boldly states.

When Faivish Pewzner last visited Boston, he was excited about many things. But the one thing he was most looking forward, was tasting the city's famous bagels. Boston is a creative town with an outdoor culture that loves good food. Art and music are really big here, and there are foodie spots everywhere you turn. From oysters, noodles, chicken, tuna, and egg salads, to a large variety of pastries, this city really has something for everyone. Over the last few years, Boston has been undergoing a bagel transformation. The city’s bagel bakeries have a lot to offer.

Wicked Local West Roxbury reports on plans for a bagel place in the same Centre Street block as Porter Cafe for a bagelry that would truck bagels "90%" prepared in New York, then cooked locally.

The as yet unnamed bagel place would join Bruegger's Bagels and Bagelville on VFW Parkway. Exodus Bagels is now churning out bagels just off Belgrade Avenue on the Roslindale line, where it plans a full-scale deli, and, of course, the Dunkin' Donuts on Spring Street and VFW Parkway sell bagel-like round breadstuffs.
