We're in Flushing (near Main and Northern) for a few days and having a rough time finding "artisan" (for lack of a better word) bread. Our toddler is a very picky bread eater, and right now we're having to trek to La Boulangerie in Forest Hills.
The "artisan" claims at Tous Les Jours were... misleading. The baguette at Paris Baguette was acceptable for a few minutes, but there's something off about it (spongy texture.) The bread at Iris was a miss, too.
I don't expect Bien Cuit level bread, but any solid, honest attempts should suffice. Any type of bread will do -- baguette, sourdough loaves, brioche, ciabatta, focaccia -- it just has to be good.
Anything come to mind?
