A new bagel shop with bagels that reportedly rival New York’s has just opened in Berkeley.

Bageltopia debuted its first brick-and-mortar location Tuesday at 1401 University Ave., a mile west of the hungry student throngs of UC Berkeley. Cofounder Dan Graf grew up in New Jersey and worked at Saul’s Restaurant & Delicatessen in North Berkeley, where he perfected a homegrown formula for East Coast-style bagels. Part of his magic process: He lets the dough cold-proof and ferment for four days before boiling and baking. And he lines his baking trays with a special linen to form a crisp, glossy crust with a supremely chewy interior.

The other cofounders of Bageltopia are Jeff Davis, of Berkeley’s Fellini Coffeebar, and Mike Daillak of Sam’s Log Cabin in Albany.
