Does anybody know where Broken Record gets their bread?
Ever since La Boulange stopped selling their brioche buns at Whole foods I've been looking for a good replacement for my burgers, I love the bread from Broken Record, both their buns and the slices they use for their Texas Toast. Last time I was there (last week) I asked the guy at the register and he said he could not tell me. When I pressed him he said, " someplace close " I then guessed Royal Bakery and to that he said , " I can't tell you. "
I though if anybody would know it would be someone on Chowhound. Anybody?

Not yet, but I will. Pacific super never even crossed my mind. I was thinking they may be from Panorama, that's where Marcel of Marcel's Kitchen got his buns when he was cooking at El Rincon.
But I wouldn't consider Panorama close to the Excelsior.

Hey Kristine. This is James from broken record. I'm glad to hear you're a fan of Steve's bread! Yes, it does come from Lucky Bakery as mentioned above. I had no idea it was such a secret. Many of our customers now visit Lucky Bakery to grab it after having enjoyed it at the BR. Steve regularly sells the white loaf bread we use for the tomato toast and the baguette we have used for some sandwiches. The other sandwich buns are a special order, but Steve (unlike myself apparently) IS a great guy and can usually make whatever you need if you ask him in advance. Ossie, why ARE you so bitter? Bread alone does not make a successful restaurant.
