East Coast-Style Bagels in Kaysville
For a decade and a half I lived in Manhattan, which meant I was privy to genuine New York bagels anytime I wished. I often frequented H&H Bagels, Barney Greengrass, Ess-a-Bagel and others. When I moved to Utah, finding an honest-to-goodness East Coast style bagel was a challenge, to say the least.
Thank goodness then for Janet Feldman, who makes what I consider to be Utah’s best bagels at Feldman’s Deli. A true East Coast type bagel is first boiled and then baked, unlike say, Einstein’s bagels which are not boiled. For all practical purposes, when you buy an Einstein’s bagel you’re buying bread.
Well, now folks in Davis County – or anyone else in the market for a great East Coast style bagel – can get them, from Cheryl’s Bagels in Kaysville. Like Janet Feldman, Cheryl Mignone hails originally from New Jersey and knows what a good bagel tastes and feels like – texture is important. A real East Coast style bagel should have a crispy exterior and is denser in texture than doughy inferior bagels that aren’t boiled before baking.
Last year, Cheryl started experimenting with making bagels in her home because she couldn’t find a decent bagel in Davis County. She tested them on her family and visiting friends, who suggested that perhaps she should go into the bagel biz. The next thing you know, Cheryl, who already had a business career, was making bagels for friends and then commercially. Cheryl’s bagels can be ordered online for scheduled pickup at her Kaysville home and, on Mondays, at a location in Sandy.
She’s now making up to 24 dozen bagels daily in her basement bagel kitchen. Flavors of her classic bagels include poppy, plain, everything, onion, garlic, sesame and salt. She occasionally does batches of “gourmet” bagels such as asiago, cheddar, cinnamon-sugar and jalapeño cheddar. Currently, Cheryl’s classic bagels are $8.95/6 or $15.95/dozen, which is a smokin’ deal for these bodacious bagels.

Tucanos: Remodeled & Reopened
The Salt Lake City location of Tucanos Brazilian Grill at The Gateway has reopened after being closed for an extensive remodel and are following all health and safety mandates.
Tucanos specializes in the Brazilian tradition of grilling called churrasco. Meats, fruits and vegetables are specially selected, seasoned and cooked on skewers over open-flame grills. The skewers are then brought to your table in a continuous rotation until you finally fill up and say “Uncle!” Guests can eat as much and as many types of meats and other foods as they like at this festive all-you-can-eat restaurant.
Churrasco grilled meat selections include center-cut sirloin, beef brisket, New York strip, top sirloin, beef tenderloin, garlic-parmesan beef, pork loin, brown sugar-glazed ham, linquiça sausage, poultry, seafood and much more. Currently, National Meat Week is being celebrated at Tucanos with the addition of tender Prime Rib and succulent Argentinian-style Chimichurri Beef Tenderloin to the menu.
