ISO best bread bakeries in NYC

Tom Cat bakery and Pain d'Avignon. Both wholesale only, I think, but the breads can be found in retailers and restaurants around town. Gourmet Garage sells Tom Cat baguette - I think it's the best in NYC. Some Pain d'Avignon breads, as well as Balthazar loaves, are sold at Whole Foods and at Corrado (Grand Central Station and a few other locations). I agree about Sullivan Street; their pane pugliese is what we always have in the house.

to taste, aside from Sullivan uptown, Amy's Bread in Chelsea Market and Eli's Bread, at Zabar's... and special mention to Caputo's in Brooklyn for the lard bread.

Amy's is also fun because you can watch them to your heart's content. But go early, like before 10 AM.

Nothing in NY compares to Northern California (SF and Napa).

That's quite a statement - Sullivan St., Balthazar, Tom Cat, PQ, Amy's, Orawasher's, H&H, Kossar's, Eli's might all beg to differ.

Try Falai Panneteria on Clinton for some really unique breads.

There's a newish(Jewish) bread bakery on 16th just west of Union Square. Exceptionally good stuff (at exceptionally high prices) 

 

Great stuff. It's got a funny name. Breads Bakery.  Best rugelach in town.
