Flagels vs. Bagels less calories, less carbs or the same

I'm wondering does anyone know if flagels have less carbs, less calories or
are they the same amount as the normal bagels?
secondly do you think sandwiches are better on flagels b/c of more surface area
or bagels are better, sandwiches such as pastrami's and breakfast sandwiches like
ham, egg and cheese???

thanks NYC foodies

LA foodie to visit Bay area

Visiting the Bay area right after Labor Day and would like some recommendations for Italian, American, Seafood, Californian & Asian Fusion. Also interested in Greek or Mediterranean food as well. Not interested in taking out a second mortgage for places like the French Laundry And Gary Danko. Where do the locals go where they get consistently good food and service?

Looking for any feedback on Gallagher's in Las Vegas??

I have read some reviews about Gallager's Steakhouse in the NYNY Hotel, but I want to see what the real deal is from all you foodies out there on ChowHound. From what I have read is the food is great but service is hit or miss. Thank you all in advance!

Spicy Food to NYC

As far as seafood - what Manhattan recommendations with good food, good service, good value and not a gourmet rip-off? How about Aquagrill vs. Pearl Oyster Bar?

What comments on Blue Hill, Mas, Pylos? Breakfast or lunch at Russ & daughters? How about Katz's Deli - breakfast, lunch or dinner? I've heard there is protocol to ordering at Katz's - what needs to be done and what should not be done?

Getting to Brooklyn - How about Di Fara for pizza? Al Di La for a Saturday night dinner? Any problems getting in around 6 p.m. for a party of 2?

LA hound just got back from SF

my girlfriend and I took a drive north from LA
we had a 24 hour window for food
it was her first time in SF

we stayed at the king george in UNION sq.

first stop into city

ferry building
we could both live in that building
we tried blue bottle coffee and acme
for a quick lunch--insanely good
clean building as well

next headed to the wharf got chowder in
a bread bowl, tasty as i remember
she loved it.

had ice cream at humphrey slocombe i think it was in the mission district
about 2 hours before dinner
should do that every damn day

had an incredible dinner at RADIO AFRICA which was
at the corner of florida & mariposa. I believe its also
called coffee bar during the day
apparently radio africa is a nomadic restaurant only opened
on thurs and fri for dinner and this is its second locale

food, service, music, vibe all well worth the drive alone
would love to dine there at least once a week, and considering
how expensive up north is this place was a steal at $100 incl.
tax, tip, corkage fee $15 2 entrees and 5 apps
cannot tell you how amazing this place is
RADIO AFRICA should be in every major city

for drinks BOURBON & BRANCH
I love bourbon and this place far exceeded
anything i could've imagined
and the most amazing part was my gf had
a cuccumber gimlet w/vodka and told me
it was the most amazing cocktail she ever had
so i had to get her another as well as another bourbon on the rocks
their selection is as good as it will get
it's a speakeasy from the 20's and the library in the back
was unreal.
an absolute treat!!!!!!!!!
need that in every major city as well

and to top it all off
the next morning
TARTINE bakery in the mission district
which is no surprise considering the line.

overall great city for food lived up to its hype
and the best part is there's more to try


i'll be up in SF for a day next week on a THURSDAY
staying in UNION SQ. but willing to go any where
for a decent to great HAPPY HOUR for the drinks
and or FOOD



looking for great deals and good food in the valley.
specifically studio city, sherman oaks areas
but the entire valley will suffice?

great deals on drinks is a plus but not my intention
i'm looking more for great deals on great food like
the cheesecake happy hour? anything similar or better?

of a niche, just wondering if there's anything like it in so. cal but especially
in the SFV, BURBANK, GLENDALE areas?
