In the annals of Western civilization, no starch surpasses bread in importance. It’s the staff of life, the start of every perfect meal, and a foodstuff that satisfies emotionally as well as gustatorily. The city is teeming with great loaves, but which to choose?
We at Fork in the Road have been rifling the city’s bread supply in search of the most meritorious loaves, and believe we have a totally solid top 10 — but bread is such a touchy subject, you may not agree. If not, please kick our asses in the comments.
So tune in bright and early tomorrow morning for Our 10 Best Loaves.
In the meantime, check out our entire library of 10 Bests.
