The Dish: Avocado Deluxe Bagel

Where to Get It: Goldberg’s New York Bagels, 9328 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring, Md.

Price: $7.99

What It Is: When hungover and in Maryland, beeline it to the best bagel shop in town—Goldberg’s New York Bagels—with locations in Silver Spring, Potomac, and Rockville. The avocado deluxe bagel is your veggie cure-all, and comes stacked with fresh tomato, alfalfa sprouts, slabs of avocado, and your choice of cheese or cream cheese. Pro tip: Order the combo on an everything bagel with a side of matzo ball soup for the perfect hot-salty to cool-creamy meal.

How it Tastes: This bagel sandwich is better than any artisanal avocado toast that you’ll find in trendier neighborhoods. The ripe avocado almost melts in your mouth once warmth is transferred from the toasted bagel halves that surround it. You’ll also get way more bang for your buck. For $7.99 the avocado deluxe comes with your choice of a fountain soda, french fries, home fries, soup, or salad.

Why It Helps: If your hangover is coming at you fast with a head-pounding fever, cool it down with the creamy deliciousness of this vegetarian-friendly breakfast. Just keep in mind that if it’s Saturday, Goldberg’s will be closed in observance of Shabbat. But kind of like with Chick-fil-A, you have to remember and respect the rule. Nowhere else in D.C. will you find a more perfect bagel—crisp and golden on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.
