** The best bread in NYC **

Well, which is it? Eli's? Sullivan? Zito's? I've had this debate with different friends and some self proclaimed food gurus, but I'm still not satisfied.

For the last several years, I've thought that Sullivan St. had the best bread, hands down. Their Pugliese is the kind you can imagine Giacomo cooking in the back alleys of Naples... black, crumbly crust with a soft, dense interior. Their ciabatta and sesame breads don't disappoint either.

Am I missing something though? Maybe I had it wrong all along. If a bread store exists somewhere that can top Sullivan, please tell.
