brooklyn bagels los angeles
Richard Friedman admires the handiwork at his L.A. bakery, Brooklyn Bagel. The story of bagels in L.A. is the story of two bakeries the one started by Friedmans father, Seymour, in 1953 and 61-year-old Western Bagel. There are plenty of Jewish delis in Southern California, and most of the best-known buy their bagels from one of the two competitors.
