Orwasher’s in the West

20161202_134420We have tasted their breads at Zabar’s and even scouted out their East Side location, but when we heard they were coming to the West Side, we were happy. And they have proven their worth. For example, you can have doughnuts freshly injected with jams, jellies and chocolate–perfect for Hanukah. 20161202_134337Their holiday challahs filled with nuts and fruits toast up beautifully and their sliced  regular challah loaf makes an incomparable French Toast.20161202_134326

In addition, their baguette is almost as good as our #1 ranked French bread at Maison Kayser. There are a few uncomfortable (for me anyway) high stools where you can sit and snack, but the best thing is the rear of the store where not only real baking goes on, but they hold classes in how to get your hands full of dough (the bakery kind).20161202_134313

This new landmark can be found at Amsterdam and 81st Street. Be sure to take a trip there–it is, as Michelin’s would say, “vaut un voyage.” You understand, we are not talking about replacing Zabar’s or any one of the other great bakeries opening up–merely adding to the riches.
