This Lakeview bagel shop is a second sibling location to the original in Lincoln Park. With oddball names like the Tonya Harding Club, the Dirty Suede and the Wam-O, the laundry list of steamed sandwiches at this bagel shop tops out at about 85 choices--let it suffice to say there's something for the vegetarian, the picky eater and the ubercarnivore alike. The shop was modeled after an independent sandwich joint at Miami University in the college town of Oxford, Ohio, and the off-beat, low-key interior with stools along the perimeter and quirky photographs on the wall almost makes you forget you're in the heart of Lakeview. Try the Wrigley Fielder (veggie spread, havarti, onions, green peppers, tomato, avocado and sprouts on a bialy); the Oak Pork BLT (chive cream cheese, bacon, smoked cheddar, lettuce, tomato, avocado and garlic mayo on an everything bagel); or the Clayboy (turkey, muenster, sprouts, tomato, avocado and honey mustard on a plain bagel). All sandwiches are offered on a sub roll if the namesake bagels aren't your thing.
