Russ & Daughters type place in LA. need good NY bagels, spreads & smoked fish.

Russ & Daughters has new bagels. For the past 6 months I think. They're really really good. New bialys too, from Hot Bread Kitchen. They are really good as well. Also, as for the shipping complaint: Russ & Daughters shipping price isn't bad, comparatively. They don't add in anything for shipping cost; it's the straight up FedEx cost for priority overnight shipping, based of weight of the package and distance it's traveling. Thus, it's more expensive when I ship to friends in California than when I ship to friends in Connecticut, for example. You should call the shop and they'll help you figure out the most efficient way to order and ship. They're really nice. i.e. On the phone, they'll let you order a quarter pound of any item, of any amount you want. I've always had good experiences in the shop and on the phone.

Do either of these two places ("Tacos Nuevo Mexico, 5th Ave. between 11th and 12th v.Cafe Con Flores, 4th Ave between 10th and 11th (that flower stand with the great soup and tamales") still exist?

I'd love to do the same test if they do.
