Best bread in a restaurant?

Not at all LOL

but speaking of bread. The bing at Majordomo <<<<<< the bread on the oysters at Girl and Goat

I’ve never been so underwhelmed and let down by bread in my life since the massively overhyped Bing. Good to see David has found other ways of using carbs - the crispy rice dish looks more up his alley.

Is there any bread from a restaurant that you actually like and think it’s worth the money? That may give people a reference or perspective.

The free kind.

Speaking recently, the bread that came along with the seafood stew at Holbox worked perfectly. I love bread, I just don’t think paying for it as a standalone item as is the case with Majordomo OR used to hide the lack of portions in a menu item such as Girl and the Goat is worth it whatsoever.

TBH, I don’t love the bing at Majordomo, either.

I do think, though, that good bread is worth paying for…

Seriously - that’s how you define quality ? That explains a lot.

I totally agree.

I am contemplating getting the bread from Angler which I’ve heard raves about (and love Angler in general), but the bing at Majordomo was supremely medicore. Why people have decided to plant their flag on the… bread at Majordomo is certainly a choice.

you gotta get the bing piping hot :heart_eyes: :heart:

The bread and butter at Petit Trois was the best I’ve ever had, and quite memorable. IIRC it was free, but I would’ve gladly paid for it.

Buckwheat sourdough bread at Bavel is pretty great! During covid they were selling the whole loaf. I miss that

Big fan of the free bread at Gwen - goes great with their charcuterie plate.

I never knew they had free baguettes. Still think the free refills are a great value.
