Best pita bread in Manhattan?

I'm tired of making my own. I cannot tolerate most pita bread sold at markets. Where can I find the best pita bread available for purchase in the city?

      Damascus Bakery bread is available at Whole Foods, so I will sometimes pick it up there, but I prefer to buy it fresh from the bakery. There are some varieties at the store that you cannot get from the distributors.

        I've bought it from both as well and its definately much better and fresher from the bakery. I think that since pita is so low fat and theirs has no preservatives just a day or two make a huge difference

    2. Dunno about "best" but you should check out Poseidon.

      1. what style are you looking for? for fluffier, but less "pockety" i really really dig the stuff at Turco Mediterranean grill in hells kitchen, but its a very specific style that may or may not suit you.

        1. Damascus in Brooklyn and Mt Ararat in Queens bake their own bread. Both are excellent.
          There may be another bakery in Bay Ridge but I can't remember where.
