The Firehook Bakery still makes its breads in a 17-foot-diameter wood-burning oven, assembled by a master baker at its original location in Alexandria. The bakery uses organic flours, and the breads are pulled from the oven when the baker determines they're ready. The result is a bread that has a thicker European crust and a chewy center. The bakery has the traditional selection of bread styles and flavors, but the pistachio stick is guaranteed to sell out early on the days it's baked. The pastries are impeccable and as outstandingly cutting-edge as the breads. This is a baker's bakery. Other locations. Also see review in Quick Bites.
