anyone else note a decline in the H&H bagel?

sad but true and they are way too expensive--Zabar's are less money and taste great too--

Woman Selling Tamales on E 14th St & 1st Avenue

I just saw the second tamale seller for the first time on the east side of 14th street and first avenue near where they sell the newspapers. My go-to tamale woman sells in the area of Ave C and E 3rd Street through the EV.

Anyone tried these tamales??Are they good?? I buy them from another woman who makes tamales and sells them more in the East Village and they are terrific.

The Tamale Lady

I love the tamales--3 kinds spicy chicken-chicken and cheese with peppers. $1.00 each--very reasonable and filling.

Tamale Woman

Yesterday I ran into her and she is around. I ate a birthday tamale for breakfast and off I went. Could not post cause I was busy. But she is around--I ran into her on 1st Avenue and 9th Street at 10AM yesterday. Yeah!

I recommend Gus & Gabriel's Gastropub 222 West 79th Street

Just ate lunch there yesterday with a good friend. The barbequed pulled pork steak is a barbeque "moment". Tender--served with mashed potatos and roasted corn--a winner. We also ordered the fish and chips--a gourmet version of fish nuggets and delicious malt vinegar for the chips. A large selection of bourbons-whiskeys-beers from all over the world rounds out my fun lunch. Our waiter/host was attentive and nice. Entrees range around $13.00--apps around $8.00 for lunch. I recommend this restaurant and the ambience is cool too.

They are expanding as I write to the place next door and combining their original space.
