Walk into this Delray Beach, lime-green market of Jewish delicacies and the place lives up to the name. In one deli case, a baker sets out rainbow marzipan bars and rugelach in apricot, berry, or chocolate. Nearby, another Way Beyond Bagels' employee doles out servings of smoked fish and preps bread for a pair of chopped salads. But the bagels here are the hallmark. They’re so delicious that the former pastry chef of the French Laundry and Bouchon has written about them. “Get a schmear for me,” Shuna Fish Lydon remarked. Kettle-boiled and then baked, the rounds offer a crispy crust and chewy, aromatic interior. In flavors beyond standards, there’s veggie, cinnamon crunch, sourdough pecan, and seven-grain. Pick up a dozen to go, with a selection of cream cheeses from early morning to late afternoon, as fresh rounds are baked hourly.
