Why are there so few good bakeries

ChewFun | Aug 11, 2008 08:15 AM

It's nearly 20 years since Marvelous Market opened. In the early 90s there was a burst of bakery activity, but it appears to have died. Marvelous isn't so marvelous anymore. Firehook isn't so hot. Uptown sort of disappeared. Philadelphia has the wonderful Metropolitan Bakery. Where are ours? The Swiss Bakery is so so. Le Pain Quoditien often burns their bread. Heidelburg is fine. Atwater is really good, but they only sell in DC on the weekends. Why don't we rate some good bakeries?
