Quick Boca Report and a Query

Bob W. | Mar 15, 200102:47 PM

Just got back from a few days in Boca.

Didn't make it to Mario's Tuscan Grill. :>( It's definitely on our must-try list for next time. Got some good grouper and meat loaf at Max's Grille in Mizner Park. Also some VERY good Thai at A-1 Thai on Federal Highway in Delray (fantastic mee krob in particular), and some nice sandwiches at Poppie's on Linton Blvd. in Delray. (Let's hope they wash their hands!)

Bu there is a problem in South Florida. WHERE ARE THE GOOD BAGELS? We did not find one bagel with even a semblance of a crust. The bagels appear to be aimed at the toothless crowd. Does no one boil their bagels down there? Sheesh. I can send you to THREE bagelries here in Fairfax County VA with far better bagels. Now, all three are run by ex-New Yorkers (one even gets his water from NY), so they know what they are doing, but is there not even one ex-New Yorker running a bagelry in South Florida? :>)
