There aren’t many good bagel options in Atlanta, so when Emerald City opened we were cautiously excited. Thankfully their New York-style bagels hold up and it’s become a go-to of ours for picking up round circles of dough. The East Atlanta spot has traditional sandwich favorites like whitefish salad, gravlax, and Scottish-style lox, and if the weather and your timing add up just right, you can eat at one of their few sidewalk tables. If not, get a handful of napkins and head to your car for immediate consumption.
