Best Restaurant Bread

What restaurant serves the best bread with their meals? Years ago I enjoyed the bread at Passe Partout (I'm sure I butchered the name) and later actually met James MacGuire and took some bread baking lessons from him. He had hinted that he might team up with a new restaurant, but I never heard anything further. So, what restaurant do you think has the best bread?

  1. From what I know, they're so few Montreal restaurants that make their own bread.

      Pretty sure that's true... most are supplied by au pain dore or premiere moisson.

        Although I think I heard, that Moishe's Steakhouse does make their own breads(breads for their bread basket, that they give customers).

          What restaurants does Pain Dore supplied to? Restaurants like Lemeac & Rumi, get their breads from Premiere Moisson from what I know.

          That's a shame. While I envy the baguettes and other breads available in Montreal, I'm a big bread eater and think that's another demonstration of a chef's skills...

          As I write this... if memory serves, doesn't Toque bake their own bread? I'm pretty sure they did when they were on St. Dennis.

        3. the restaurant Salle à Manger makes its own bread. The raisin bread is great, and a twist on the normal white bread. They also have this nice multigrain one. yum.

            Second the motion for Salle and Bronte.

          2. Bronte Restaurant have fresh bread made everyday...

            Basil Foccacia
            Orange and Honey bread
            Flax and something else
            and Lavash bread.

            All very good :)

              Who's Bronte bread maker now then? Their original bread maker Angela Randisi was fired by Bronte restaurant several years back, as a cost saving measure(they stopped making their own bread). Wonder what's Angela doing nowadays.

            2. Lots of restos are supplied by Le Fromentier.

              1. Raza (and sister restaurant Madre) make their own rolls (using at times plantains or sweet potato).
