Hi I'm looking for recommendations for really good baguettes - preferably ficelle - to buy in central London. Thank you.
Might be worth checking Poliane in Pimlico. Further out, there's Tetote near Wembley for Japanese styled french breads.
along with zuriga's suggestion, i'd also check out the boulangerie boutique in south ken:
Fantastic, thank you both. South Ken here I come. Any recommendations in London W1 would also be welcome.
there's always le pain qoutidien in marylebone/covent garden/holborn, but i've never seen ficelle. baguette yes.
Good idea about Le Pain Quotidien. I was at the Marylebone one on Monday and had some great breads with my gruel. One was definitely a tasty baguette slice. Much to my surprise, the other piece was NY-style rye bread. I wanted to cry for joy. :-)
Aubaine is a French patisserie and bakery in South Kensington. I haven't been there in quite awhile, so I can't vouch for their ficelle. It's probably worth a try.
