Best restaurant bread
Some form of bread is usually a part of most, if not all, restaurant meals. In some cases, it's the highlight. So, in keeping with that idea, who has the best bread in a restaurant in the area?
If you want to post about good local bakeries, or even about bakeries that happen to also serve sandwiches, please start another bread thread. I want to keep this one focused on those restaurants where the bread arrives (bread basket, outer portion of a sandwich, tortilla, pizza crust, I don't care - just as long as it's some form of bread), one takes a bite, and experiences bread nirvana.
PS On the subject of restaurant bread, I recommend the chapter (I believe it's entitled "Adam, Real Last Name Unknown" or something close to that) in Anthony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential". I found that chapter in particular to be a hilarious read.
The bread at PS7's is really innovative and tasty. My problem is that we had trouble flagging down a server for seconds. I also happen to love that puffy hot pita-esque bread at Zaytinya.
Carlyle in Shirlington has warm bread and yummy mini-donuts last I went.
2941 had wonderful bread when elder Krinn was baking - I haven't visited since, so I don't know.
Ray's the Steak (visited last night) had a wonderfully soft, yummy rosemary bread.
I like Zaytinya's pitas when they're warm. I've had really dry ones there before too....
Thanks for starting this thread, Wart. One of my favorite restaurant adages (ok, I created it) is "Good restaurants may have bad bread, but bad restaurants will not have good bread."
