Bread in NYC comparable to Acme bread in San Francisco??

Meils | Jul 22, 2005 12:09 PM

Just got back from a trip to San Fancisco where one of the big highlights was a trip to the Farmers Market/Ferry building. We bought a variety of heirloom tomatoes, basil, fresh mozarella, peaches, nectarines, plums, and the best blackberries I have ever had. I was in heaven.

We topped it off with a rustic roll and olive roll from acme, and I have to say it was some of the best bread that my boyfriend and I have ever had. Crusty on the outside but not too hard, light, soft, chewy and doughy on the inside. Salty but not too salty....absolutely delicious.

And I'm now on a quest to find something like it in NYC. I'm a fan of Amy's but this was above and beyond in this category (didn't try any of the heavier breads so I can't make that comparison.) I'm envisioning a similiar picnic in Central Park but the bread is key. Thoughts? Thanks!
