Need for-real Top spots in Boca Raton/Delray-

LETTUCEINLOVE | Mar 23, 201401:11 PM

I am looking for top spots in Boca Raton/Delray area. Not usually fan of chain places... hence, Capital Grille, Houstons, etc. Specifically, Steakhouse, Italian, Greek, Mexican and Pub. I really need a great Italian deli, bagel place, and most of all Grocery store. Totally NOT impressed with Publix, Greenwise, Wholefoods or Fresh Market. What's going on in Florida? Don't people have standards?
What we've been to so far (but could use a good chowhound list):
Table 42. Good lite Italian, such as pizza or panini
Trattoria Romano: loud, but good
Capital Grille: stunk, bad shrimp
Trulucks: overpriced, ok
Dubliner: wouldn't go back
Abe and Louie's: thought it was good, but was with people who were ragging on the whole meal and ruined it for me
Flakowitz: Stick with the bagels and eggs
Einstein bagels: you've got to be kidding me! they should be be condemned for horrible food
13 Table American: outstanding. really.
Burt and Max's: fresh and good.
Farmer's Table: I like this kind of food, not for everyone. Vegannaise is a gross ingredient they use however.
Yakitori Sake House: Enjoyable and fresh tasting
Souvlaki Fresh: fast, cheap and good
Spedini Pizza: Long Island/New York worthy
Cotes de France: delicious croissants

I'm not a food snob, just a food lover. I love cheap, I love fancy, I love good. I keep it real.
