Sage Bagels and Appetizers, a deli and takeout joint at 800 E. Hallandale beach Blvd. in lovely Hallandale, has mighty fine no-compromise New York bagels; I guess this is the same operation Chuck mentioned in nearby Aventura. Not quite as crusty as my ideal ones, but these would more than hold their own anywhere up North. I had an appointment at an office in the same strip and stopped in there to get a drink, and when I saw the bagels I got one to try. I pulled off a bit on my way out the door, took a bite, and did an about-face to get a bag of 'em to take home. The poppy were especially divine.
