Schmear Campaign: Bagel lovers appalled by Nixon’s Zabar’s order

September 11, 2018 - 9:00 am

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Plenty of New Yorkers love a bagel and lox, but aficionados appear appalled by what Cynthia Nixon ordered at Zabar's the other day.

Nixon asked for lox, cream cheese, and capers -- which are all pretty typical -- the trouble is she had them on a cinnamon raisin bagel. In case you were wondering, this is not a thing to do.

Nixon is running for governor and tried to spin the order as a preference for sweet and salty.

“It’s pretty delicious,” Nixon said. “Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.”

A Nixon spokeswoman piled on calling her choice an example of her support for the underrepresented.

“New Yorkers need someone to stand up for their view, even if those opinions are out of the mainstream or even unpopular.” Rebecca Katz said.

People who keep track of these things were not convinced. They're filing this one with Mayor de Blasio's knife and fork pizza faux pas.
