A loaf of bread is humanity's essential foodstuff, fulfilling our hunger like water slakes thirst or mustaches obliterate childhood. Dig in to a carb-load with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of rustic bread, panini, pizze, and more from Sullivan Street Bakery, located in Hell's Kitchen.
Owner Jim Lahey imbues his experience as a sculptor into every aspect of the bakery's rustic Italian breads. Sink weary teeth into the spa-like sourdough specialty pane casareccio ($7.25), a dark-crusted oval of mouth-based mollycoddling, or try the light ciabatta grande ($3.50), which translates to "large slipper" in Italian because of its prevalence among the night's giant, roaming bread legs. Sullivan Street Bakery also offers high-quality sandwich-based applications of these yeasty masterworks, such as the pork and peach, gently bread-enveloped shallot puree, roast pork, dandelion, peach, chili powder, salt, and olive oil ($6), as well as daring takes on classic Cuban and Caprese sandwiches. The bakery also offers authentic pizze and sweet-tooth-satiating dolci.
Bon Appétit magazine named Sullivan Street Bakery one of its Top 10 Best Bread Bakeries in America. Sullivan Street Bakery has also been featured in Martha Stewart Living and BusinessWeek SmallBiz. More than 90 Yelpers give the business an average of 4.5 stars.
