This long-standing Little Italy bakery has been peddling crusty loaves to New York restaurant clients and consumers since 1903. Among the many carby offerings, we love the cultish provolone bread. Cheese-filled nooks and crannies run the length of this submarine-style loaf, making each airy slice a stand-alone snack. Look for the bread with the most golden cheese clinging to the crust—the melted provolone spills from the dough while baking and cools into rich sheets of crispy curds.
