I've seen some bagel discussions, but none specific to West Broward. My father, a transplanted Brooklynite, has settled on Schwartz & Luigi's (Sunset Strip west of Pine Island Rd) for his bagel of choice, while recognizing that it isn't great. (He'll defend the bagel, but there's a hole in his argument -- HYUK HYUK.)
If you're still with me after that, I'd welcome recommendations for best bagel in the general area, with Schwartz & Luigi's as a baseline.
While we're on the topic, what about specialty stores for lox/nova/whitefish, as Schwartz & Luigi's offers? How does S&L rank in the West Broward (or slightly beyond) pantheon?
