Home to the “Flagel” which is a flat bagel, Baz takes square aim at those nutty diners who insist on scooping out the middle of regular bagles. Eating at Baz won’t save you any calories, though: these bagels have far larger circumferences than usual. But I must say they're mighty tasty. Top it with one of the fab, house-made cream cheeses, like horseradish and beet or cucumber and dill. Baz also serves such deli faves as matzoh ball soups and sandwiches of all sorts.
