Lookin' for lox

I have been on a lox kick lately.
It's kinda funny because I went through life thinking I didn't like it, when in reality, I never tried the brined salmon before. It must have been one of those foods I declared gross as a kid while eating at Benji's with my dad and never bothered to check back in with it once my taste buds matured.
Recently, it occurred to me that I probably would like lox – which is derived from the Yiddish word for "salmon" – because I love sushi so much. And lo and behold, I ate a bagel with lox, cream cheese and capers – at Benji's – and have been on the hunt for fresh lox ever since.
So. Any suggestions? I had some good stuff at Cafe at the Plaza recently, as well, but looking for new and exciting places to devour raw fish for breakfast.
I love the lox from Benji's in Shorewood. If I am buying it for my house I get it from Trader Joe's
