I just rode 40 blocks in the searing heat to get pizza for a dear friend who's birthday is today, Arriving at the store at 6.55pm the door was locked and I was assailed by a gesticulating employee who told me they were closed, Well their clearly advertised hours are till 7pm on a Saturday - They still had all the food out on display - cash register on lights etc, I'm stunned. I've been visiting this store, bringing friends and publicizing it generally for years - But it just is not OK. If you advertise till 7 - you must stay open till 7. I'm sure their employee will say it was gone 7 - but it was not - I even held my cellphone up to the window and it was clearly 6.56 at that point.
I will not return, I will not recommend and quite honestly you should be concerned. No customer service - no care - no respect. The product is great - the service or customer care is really not.
Man can live on bread alone – Quite simply the best bread in NYC, if not the best in the US (and frankly, French boulangers ought to be a little intimidated).
The pizzas are addictive -- don't miss potato, or the bianco -- and make for a perfect lunch if you're walking around SoHo. Order one ahead for a cocktail party snack.
Don't miss the loaves, either. The pugliese is perfect -- the crisp, almost carmelized crust encasing beautiful, airy bread is a revelation. Sesamo, a similar bread but coated in sesame seeds is equally tasty.
Get ready to turn your back on Atkins.
best savory bread – Don't come here if you're looking for the usual bakery sweet stuff. It's all about the bread, mostly. I had the pecorino bread and it was diiiiiiiviiiiiine!! I also had the pine nut tart thing and it to was absolutely delicious. The only thing I didn't like is that there's hardly any seating. They definitely need more room.
The best breads – Forget about Vesuvio's up the street, that place gets the hype for having been around so long... Sullivan Street is the real deal. Crunchy crust with a light airy middle, this place makes bread into an art form. The pizza breads are to die for... zucchini, celery root, tomato, pecorino, mushroom, potato and the brand new spinach... I've tried them all and they are amazing.
