The Best Bagels and Lox in Los Angeles

L.A. gets no respect as a bagel town. New York transplants grouse that the water doesn't have the right blend of minerals, and Montreal expats lament the dearth of wood-fired ovens. Luckily for hungry Angelenos, there are in truth plenty of places in the Southland to grab all sorts of bagels, lox and related dishes -- just in time for February 9, National Bagels and Lox Day.

Here are a few examples. Don't forget to tell us your favorite places to get your bagel-and-lox fix in the comments.
