French baguette in NYC?

Charles Pehlivanian | Sep 29, 2001 10:41 AM

Where can I get an authentic baguette in NYC? The usual problems I have with local versions:
1. they have a sourdough taste
2. they are "spongy" inside (like Italian bread) and
not flaky like the French versions
3. they are not crusty enough on the outside

The first violation really offends me. Can anyone find me such a loaf?
