Spelt Bagels

Spelt bagels are indeed delicious and beyond chewy -- well said. Sorry; can't give you a reference for where I ate them, I think it must have been in NYC. Much like whole wheat bagels, of course. No, it's not egg, I understand...but if you can't do wheat, then it's pretty darn exciting. I can't stop thinking about them now that I have this idea that Goldberg's might do them as a special order. It's hard to plan quite that far in advance, but I may pull it off if they will!

Spelt Bagels

Desperately seeking spelt bagels! Of course, I'd like them to be terrific bagels, but at this point, I"m not picky. Has anyone seen them anywhere in DC or the DC metro area (esp. the MD side of things)?

Staff at Goldberg's on Georgia in Silver Spring said they "might" do a special order...will check Bethesda Bagels and Morty's Delicatessen...any known sources would be hugely appreciated, but I'm willing to follow up on potential sources, too.

Thank you kindly!

Thanksgiving with Parents in Silver Spring Environs?

We did the classic "invite the in-laws for Thanksgiving because the kitchen renovation will be done for sure..." -- and the kitchen is a mess. And will be a mess.

We live in Takoma Park. And need to find a fancy, as-quiet-as-possible place to go out for dinner on Turkey Day with New Yorker in-laws who *know* great food. Can't find any reviews of Nicaro with the new chef; Italian is probably out because one of us can't eat gluten. Would like to not have to drive too far (but all suggestions welcome).

Thank you!
