It's been a big summer for Rosenberg's Bagels & Delicatessen, which opened in July in a Welton Street storefront and has been packing in the customers ever since. But owner Josh Pollack's claims that he makes an authentic "New York-style" New York native Eden Myles has spent years in the bagel biz in Denver, so when Josh Pollack opened Rosenberg's Bagels & Delicatessen and started touting his authentic "New York" bagel, got a rise out of baker Eden Myles, who insists that his Denver bagels are better.

Myles's criticism of Rosenberg's inspired this from AnnaConda:
Does this dude realize that he sounds like a total douchebag? The Denver restaurant market is very competitive right now, but you don't see chefs talking smack about each other in the local media; they're usually very supportive of one another. This guy needs to STFU; let his bagels do the talking if he thinks they're so superior.

But then there's this from WillieStortz:
The only thing that reminded me of New York at Rosenberg's were the prices.

Bagel Deli on Hampden is still the top bagel in Denver.

And Jordan suggests:

Let's get a panel of experts to be the judge between Black Sheep and Rosenberg's!
Have you been to Rosenberg's? Have you tried a Black Sheep bagel? Who do you think makes the best bagel in town?

ORRRR, we can just eat the bagel we like. Who cares if someone tells me they're better than those? We are all different and like different things, stop homogenizing everything, all the time.

Never heard of, Black Sheep. Rosenberg's Bagels and Delicatessen is legit!

It would be so great if any bagel store would simply cook the bagels until they are golden brown instead of having them look and taste likeuncooked pizza dough.

Boiled then baked... No artificial colors or flavors. If it stands up to that, then who gives a fuck. B&L in Rapid City had some real bagels.

i lived in NYC for 35 years. i had Rosenbergs... i had Bagel Deli... Rosenbergs is much closer to authentic any day of the week. Bagel Deli's contention that the only thing "NY" about Rosenbergs is the price, is laughable. Bagel Deli's prices are closer to Manhattan pricing.
