My favorite bakery just reopened.
They were closed all of August, probably out shaking the farine out of their hair on the deck of a yacht off the coast of Corse... Leaving us denizens of the 11eme precisely zero options for excellent baguettes FOR AN ENTIRE MONTH. (These are truly pilllowy crusty lovely perfectly-salted creations, the modest highlight of many a meal.)
This company Gana has many boulangeries throughout France. Several in Paris alone. However I can attest that none I've visited are as ship-shape spotlessly perfect as the one in my neighborhood, where through well-placed windows you can watch bakers kneading dough, muttering to each other, wishing they were still on vacation.
