Carb Loading: 10 Must-Try Bread Baskets in NYC

Bread at Aska 
While many have sworn off bread for 2013 cleansing, others (like us) haven’t stopped gorging on the complimentary pre-appetizer carb-fest that is the bread basket. Some restaurants no longer serve the beloved bundle of dough, others make you shamefully ask for it, and a select number feel like they complete their loaf call of duty by presenting a few stale slices on a plate with your meal. Not these eateries, which offer baskets that almost outshine the main courses. Click through the slide show below for some dough selections that will make you crumble, and let us know about your favorites in the comments.

  1. Agree on the Scarpetta bread basket is the best. Had it at the Scarpetta in Miami Beach. Yum.

  2. Bouley! They wheel out that entire tray of artisanal breads like lavender raisin. It took all my willpower to not ask for a slice of each.

  3. Another vote for Commerce. Best I've had. All made on premises if I'm not mistaken.
