Flannelly

From Jesse Green's article about Mike Nichols, "'When in Doubt, Seduce,'" in the March 12-19, 2012, issue of New York magazine.

Another morning, at a restaurant near his Upper East Side home, Nichols asks a waitress if the pancakes are "wet or flannelly."

Makes me think of Elizabeth David frowning upon salmon that's woolly.
