Now that former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman has officially entered the GOP presidential field, he's making a play for a small but passionate group of voters: street food fanatics.
"Street food is so fresh, and it's so good and it's so cheap," he says.
The Republican presidential candidate's newly launched website includes a video called "Jon's Favorite Foods" where he talks about only one kind of cuisine: the kind you eat on the street.
In a city celebrated for its "cawfeee" accent and doughnut-shaped rolls, the store that by many accounts is New York's bagel-lovers' paradise is set to shutter its doors.
H&H Bagels - a Manhattan landmark of sorts - will sell its last homemade dozen and close on Sunday, according to Moshe Fintz, the company's business manager.
The store's no-frills business model and doughy circles earned a cult-like following over its 39-year history on 80th Street and Broadway.
Many loyal customers aren't taking the news of the closing lightly.
"We have to preserve what's unique about New York," said James Besser, a pianist from Manhattan's Upper West Side. "And what's distinct about us here is the bagels."

Before you take your next bite, restaurateur, chef and Top Chef Masters alum Traci Des Jardins wants you to ask yourself a few questions.

2. Where did it come from?
3. How was it produced?
4. How did it travel to where you are?
Staying connected to your food is crucial, says Des Jardins. People need to take responsibility for the creatures they consume and the impact their food choices make on the environment. And, she cautions young chefs, despite what you see on television, it's not all glitz, glamour and rock star treatment when you get hired in a kitchen; it's brutally hard work.
