I have been gone from Miami for a while and when I would visit, I would go to BE and get a meal. Always delicious, always great service and always a friendly atmosphere. I walked in and something was different. The place looked different and felt different. It didn't seem clean. And the absense of an hour wait should have been my first sign. Back in the day, when I lived here (until the early 90's) I owned several waterfront restaurants and even bought my Sunday Brunch bagels here. Well, I have moved back. And this afternoon myself and a friend went in for some lunch/brunch whatever. It just wasn't good at all. And it seemed that the patrons around me where having trouble too. The waiter was terrible. You would ask him for something and he would disappear and not bring it. People were waving him and the Manager?? down the whole time we were there, I ordered chopped chicken liver on a bagel and my friend order lox, eggs and onions. It was delivered without any utensils and no bagel with the eggs. The CCL was turning bad, the pot salad was not homemade and was turning as well. The tomato slices with my bagel were crunchy. My friend's eggs were not delicious either. I can't remember a time when I received a bad meal there. Until now. I told the waiter about the potato salad and he said it's not very good and everyone complains. Where are my jewish friends that used to own the place? Because I am sure there are new owners and man, they don't get it. Too bad as this was a Miami Icon. No more. Go to Coral Bagels a little farther North - much better food and service, and on the Beach, Jerry's Famous Deli!! Great food and service as well.
