Let me just start by saying, I love you Sullivan St. Bakery.
Bread is one of my big time loves and Jim Lahey at Sullivan St. Bakery has perfected it. We headed to the bakery for lunch but came a bit early for the sandwiches so we decided to snack on a few of the breads and pizzas, near the end, we practically ended up eating the whole menu because we could not stop eating! We even bought more to bring home - at the risk of smelling like garlic on the long subway ride home.
We also got to meet the baker, Jim Lahey, who was incredibly nice, warm and funny to boot! Please give this quaint little bakery a visit - you won't regret it.
Savory brioche with proscuitto and gruyere - how could it not be delicious?
Cauliflower pizza: best invention ever. Cauliflower on a pizza? Who knew? Anyways, really, best invention ever.
Mushroom Pizza with thyme. If you love mushrooms, you will definitely love this pizza. Thin crust, topped with oodles of mushrooms - delicious.
On to the sandwiches: mozzarella and prosciutto. Simplicity at its best. This sandwich really let the simple ingredients shine - especially the bread. Oh gosh - best sandwich bread I've ever had - crispy but perfectly chewy on the inside.
Roasted beets, arugula, goat cheese, olive oil. Honestly, the things that Jim Lahey does with such simple ingredients is amazing. He uses the best of everything so it just tastes so fantastic!!!
Bresola, heirloom tomatoes, arugula, olive oil, olive puree. The heirloom tomatoes in this were sublime! They had this salty, sweet flavor that was delicious.
