Where To Get Good Bread
Because life is too short to eat cardboard.
If happiness, in your mind, is a fresh, warm baguette, this Belgian boulangerie has your number. Its baguettes are partially baked ahead of time and then finished up on demand—meaning that if you’re willing to wait five minutes, you’ll be rewarded with a piping hot baton of that French staple, perfect for serving with your favorite soft cheeses and charcuterie (although good luck getting it home without eating half of it en route). Other bestsellers at the chain include whole wheat (great for pairing with soups and omelettes), a gluten-free super-seed bread (available by special request) and a five-grain raisin bread. Challah is available on Fridays.
