artisan bread miami?
i was wondering where one can procure really good bread in the miami area? and is there any good sourdough around town?
it seems that the top restaurants around town (i.e. Michael's Genuine) get their bread baked for them specially from private bakers. that makes perfect sense and all, but I am wondering where the common folk, like myself, can go and get quality fresh baked bread?
admittedly, i am spoiled in having moved here from Berkeley where it was easy as pie to head to Acme Bread or the Cheeseboard for some of the best bread ever. while i don't necessarily expect to find that kind of quality of bread in south florida, my fingers are crossed and i am very hopeful.
any and all suggestions are welcome.
thanks in advance.
I'd like to keep your hope alive, but can't in good conscience do so. Bread is an area that's severely lacking here. You're looking at Whole Foods and such and independent places aren't much better. There's a French chain called Paul that's not too bad. Bread at local supermarkets is horrendous. But at least places here will slice bread for you, unlike Acme (that always drove me crazy!).
