Any wood fired bread?

Any place to buy some loaves of dense French or italian bread to bring home to a foodie friend? When I went to NYC I brought her back some loaves as a souvenir and she was forever grateful. Even brick oven but with that char on it.

    If there is no place that has good charred, dense bread, maybe some European pastries? Other than Whole Foods, any other gourmet grocers?

      Not sure if it's wood fired but I love Bon Breads. I've never purchased directly from them, but places it supplies like Parma and Roccos. Bouchon also has some great bread and will let you purchase it.

        Forget it.

        Like BBQ, dim sum and sushi, Las Vegas is a wasteland for really good bread. You want adequate... all over town.

          Scarpetta and D.O.C.G. Enoteca (Cosmopolitan) have terrific breads coming from their oven (wood-fired). Perhaps you could ask if they would allow you to buy some to go (although that may also force them to tweak a little, since they are baking for pretty immediate consumption). Agree with Bouchon, and J.J.'s Boulangerie at the Paris turns some nice product (they serve as the master bakery for all of the restaurants on the property). And Bon Breads (http://www.bonbreads.com/) has now opened in Town Square, which makes them much more convenient for visitors.

            Not charred, but if you want dense, try some of the breads here:
