Where to Find Best Bagels in DC

List of bagel flavors compiled by Barred in DC as of 2/6/21

Someone (not from NY) posted something about a terrible DC bagel yesterday and it got all the likes. So I thought it would be best to make a list of all the DC proper (that is within the limits of the District of Columbia for the complainers out there) spots that you can get a great bagel. Here are details (hours of operation subject to change). Not in any kind of order.
