Hi all -
Sorry if this is a repeat, but I've been prowling previous posts and haven't come across quite what I'm looking for. I am dying for some fantastic bread. A great ciabatta, a good rustic country bread, something we could make delectable panini with or feel happy sopping up soup with. I know there's no Cheeseboard down here (I lived in Berkeley for 5 1/2 years and it's still hard to let the Cheeseboard go!), and I hear there are good baguettes around, but is there somewhere I can find big crusty loaves?
I live in Costa Mesa and would die of happiness if there's somewhere in OC, but I'm willing to hit spots in LA, etc. if it'll get me a little closer to bread heaven. Thanks again, and sorry if this is repeat-y!
