Some of my favorites recently:
-Is the amuse considered free? I liked the savory panna cotta one I had at Opus and their bread basket was good too
-The bread at Angeli Cafe!
-I love the spicy carrots at Gilbert's and also love asking for "el diablo," their really hot table salsa
-Had a very good bread basket at Penthouse, the new restaurant atop the Huntley where Toppers once was.
