HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, MARCH 21, 2014 PAGE 7A The bagel-croissant, called the cragel, tastes as good as it looks. By Lauren Rothman Williamsburg, Brooklyn was The Jewish Week baking up a bagel-croissant hybrid no doubt inspired by First came the Cronut. the wild success of Manhat- Now, there's the Cragel. tan bakery Dominique Ansel's On Jan. 13, the New York cronut, apastry cream-filled, CityblogGothamistbrokethe croissant-like flaky pastry. news that the Bagel Store in The latter became a bonafide phenomenon: hours-long lines formed outside the bakery, and pastry chefAnsel even trademarked the term-- check out the little "TM" in a recent profile run by Food & Wine magazine. After the Gothamist piece ran, numerous outlets flocked to the Bagel Store on Bedford Avenue to interview owner Scot Rosillo, who claimed that customers had been "absolutely astounded by the taste" and said that the store had trouble keeping the cragels stocked. Still, only a few blogs actually tasted the cragel to verify such claims. Such was my mission earlier today, when I made the trip up to the store to conduct a taste test. The first thing I noticed when I arrived? The store's cragel offerings had expanded from one flavor--plain--to several, including a pretzel- croissant type as well as a cinnamon sugar variety. But being the good Jew that I am, the type that caught my eye was the (poorly-named) "Ruagel,"a so-called cross be- tween a bagel and a chocolate rugelach. I picked up both a ruagel and a plain cragel and went on my way. Back at the Jewish Week offices, I dug into my bounty. I liked the ruagel: it's very flaky, with a hit of light chocolate flavor and a little bit of complementary saltiness, but certainly doesn't satisfy like an Ostrovitsky's rugelach does. And the original cragel? In my opinion, it's a total dud: neither light and flaky enough to qualify as a croissant, nor hearty and chewy like a good bagel, with a dull, under-salted flavor. If you're in the NewYork area, try it yourself and see if you agree. Local Israeli folk dancers enjoying an Israeli dance together.
