Take Lox Haven (5715 Margate Blvd., Margate, 954-977-7300) at its word. This Jewish grocery store is a veritable treasure chest -- or ice chest -- of smoked, pickled, and cured fish. Lake Michigan whitefish, kippered salmon, hand-cut sable, Nova Scotia salmon, and a terrific assortment of herring beckon those who have a taste for strong flavors. Of course, this is the time of year when patrons descend on the place for all sorts of platters -- especially cream cheese and bagel combos -- for consumption on the Jewish holidays. But don't take the competition to heart. There's plenty to go around, and you're allowed to browse the goods even if you don't know the difference between a schmeer and schlemiel or halvah and "Hava Nagila."
