Making the Bread

From focaccia and fluffy dinner rolls to crusty Italian loaves and beautiful baguettes, nothing compliments a magnificent meal like a bountiful bread basket. Atkins advocates might want to avoid this week's Yelp issue, 'cause we're delivering the absolute ultimate in carby delights right to your table! "If you want crusty, chewy bread made from nothing more than flour, yeast, and salt," then Daniel C asserts, Calandra's in Newark "is the place." Meanwhile in Hoboken, Alison C hits up Food Network feature Antique Bakery. Even though it was late in the day, her wheat roll "was still soft, doughy, and could not be finished in one serving." Did you know the famed Balthazar in NYC indeed sources their bread from Balthazar Bakery in Englewood? Priscilla K tips an early morning visit: "Your nose flares on reflex from the glorious smell of yeast, sugar, fruit and other crucial ingredients." Say carbe diem with Dom's! They go "beyond your standard baguette," says Lorenzo T, with coal oven-baked "onion and olive loaves, several different varieties of focaccia, and garlic bread sticks." The early bird catches the stuffed breads from Pecoraro Bakery, where Jason S loves that these greasy pleasures are "shockingly heavy, perhaps because they are somehow loaded with enough oil to make a paper bag translucent by the time you get home." Contrastingly, up the street, Denise C satisfies all her cravings with Second Street Bakery's sausage bread that, to her surprise, was "not greasy at all and had big chunks of sausage inside." The pan de sal delivers at Jersey City's Philippine Bread House, where Deborah D declares that "these mini, freshly baked, buttery rolls will change your life. They're slightly sweet and complement savory dishes, sweet jellies," or can be just "eaten plain, right out of the bag." Michael K "could live on the proverbial diet of bread and water" as long as that bread was the Russian Rye from Harrison's Pechters M Bread, while Rachel P's challah haven is Zadies. "Standing in line is half the experience" – no amount of pushy Jewish grandmothers can keep her from that chocolate babka! Let's not forget one of my favorites==Arturo's==where they back their own artisnal bread for their sandwiches, etc. Located in Maplewood Village.
