Old School Bakery’s Paris-trained owner and operator Billy Himmelrich helms a staff of bread artisans who rise before dawn to mix, shape, and bake fresh loaves and baguettes and rolls and breadsticks. The bakers patiently proof and ferment each loaf of bread, which are sold when they're as fresh as a member of the royal court at Bel Air ($6 for large/deluxe or $4 for small), at one day out from the oven's warm embrace ($3 large; $2 small), and for a steep discount when they're more than one day old ($1). The bread gallery showcases featured breads, such as the ciabatta or seed rye loaves, whose angular shape complements the rounded sides of the brioche and sundried rolls. Sweet teeth may sneak a peak at baskets of croissants and muffins that gleaned their crusty exterior and moist interior from secrets spilled by Winston Churchill’s acting coach.
