Who makes the best baguette?

Monica | Oct 18, 2010 06:45 AM

Bad food disappoints me but nothing disappoints me more than a basket of bad bread when dinding out.
I don't mind a poor quality ham but I don't forgive bad bread.
I walk into a deli for lunch and if their breads don't look good, I walk right out.
It's so darn hard to find good bread even in NYC.

I used to love Amy's baguette but on my recent trip to Amy's, I was disappointed that their baguette wasn't as good as they used to be. What a 'tragic'.
Balthazar is good but even they seem to have bad bread days. Their crust is a bit too thin and inside needs to be chewier.
So who makes the best baguette these days???
