Best Fast Food New York 2013 - SCRATCHbread
SCRATCHbread says it purveys fast food with slow-food thoughts, and the food that emerges from this little takeout window in Bed-Stuy is miles beyond anything from a drive-through. The bread is, indeed, made from scratch, and it's the cornerstone of SCRATCHbread's success, the bedrock of its sandwiches and breakfast treats, which runneth over with gooey cheese, yolk, pesto, and anything else a hangover might require. Buttery grits are available all day, and the newly implemented dinner menu features thick square pizzas with a distinctive sourdough crust, pastas, and a delicious vegan take on Caesar salad with black kale and smoked almond dressing. The place doubles as a straight-up bakery, providing the area with a much-needed source of quality bread—and the $1.50 whole-wheat focaccia is a steal.
