The best baguettes I've been able to procure were from Fairway and those were just ok. Included in my first order from FreshDirect.com were three baguettes which were really bad. Firstly they were 2/3 the length of a normal baguette and when I warmed them to make sandwiches and tried to slice them transversally, they just crumbled and the crust fell apart. No good.
So, I implore you, dear Chowhounds -- where is there a good French bakery around here where I can get a good baguette to make sandwiches with?
