Crowds line up down the street to bite into the fresh Montreal-style bagels at this Philadelphia spot. The wait is worth it, as Josh Denny found out when he was lured here by The Whale, a 14-pound creation that he deemed a “bagel leviathan.” Smoked salmon delivered fresh daily from Brooklyn is heaped on a massive bagel that’s piled high with mounds of cream cheese, hefty slabs of tomato and a thicket of sliced onions. Two pounds of housemade whitefish salad and a flurry of capers complete the creation.
