Breaking Bread

Kind of off-topic post, but interesting nonetheless for our foodies out there.

The New York Time’s food critic, Frank Bruni, wrote this blog post today, Our Nightly Bread, which explores a positive side to restaurants charging for bread and butter these days.

As someone who loves, loves, loves warm crusty bread dunked in deliciously-herbed olive oil at good Italian restaurants (but could easily pass it up if it’s sub-par) I thought it was worth sharing.

Take a read and let me know what you think about charging for bread during tough economic times.

As for me, I’d rather pay for it and get the good, good stuff, then see a stale, wasted basket taking up space on the table!
