Myles's criticism of Rosenberg's inspired this from AnnaConda:

Does this dude realize that he sounds like a total douchebag? The Denver restaurant market is very competitive right now, but you don't see chefs talking smack about each other in the local media; they're usually very supportive of one another. This guy needs to STFU; let his bagels do the talking if he thinks they're so superior.

But then there's this from WillieStortz:

Bagel Deli on Hampden is still the top bagel in Denver.
