BECAUSE YOU CAN’T EVEN BUY THIS BREAD (YET)
EMMER & ASH
One of the best loaves in the entire city comes from a bakery that doesn’t even formally exist yet. For the past year, Philip Haddad has been testing bread recipes at the site of his forthcoming Emmer & Ash, and putting the extra loaves up for grabs. The resulting stampede is a local foodie Hunger Games, with the likes of Cory Vitiello clamouring for a loaf— and a victorious Matt Galloway posting a photo of his. The only way to get one is to follow @harbordst.bread on Instagram and hightail it to Harbord and Borden when he posts a shot of whatever astoundingly photogenic loaf he’s testing. (Or wait for the place to open next year.) 161 Harbord St.
