Almondine bread?

so, after hearing the bread guy on NPR (and seeing him on conan the night before) recommend ALMONDINE in dumbo for really welldone bread in NYC i really want to go. anyone know much about almondine. their website looks great. i would really love to have a good baguette. i never buy baguettes. ever. inevitably they are horrible. the only good ones i have had (keep in mind, i only went to paris once, and wasnt really into food then) were the ones we made at culinary school. they were beautiful, everything that a baguette should. amazingly fragrant, beautiful and irregular crumb structure just begging to be devoured. amazing. i have since tried just a few here and there in the well-known NYC bread shops and have never been impressed.
keep in mind, i think theres tons of really good breadin NYC (Lahey at the real sullivan street in hell's kitchen is great - our best prolly) but not in the way of baguettes is all. oh, wait a minute, i just remember that i heard a while back that though you might find it hard to believe, pan la quetitidien had a good one...
