Oh - I suppose I also mean "best non-Tartine bread' as well. I will be in the Bay Area (SF and Berkeley) in a couple of weeks, and I want to know what locals consider to be the best bread in the area. I'll go anywhere to find it.
Also - does any bakery in the area make a dense, square Scandinavian-style whole grain bread? I keep thinking I bought it at Tartine in the past, but I may be hallucinating.
Thanks for the help.
