Georgian bakery that makes incredibly flavorful bread and lots of other specialties.

Restaurant Details

The Georgian breads here are baked in a large brick dome called a toné, and the dough is stuck directly to the inner walls of the oven, as with Indian naan. The result—which comes in a large round or a smaller torpedo-shaped loaf—is soft, chewy, and incredibly flavorful. Other specialties include hachapuri, bread filled with mushrooms or a gooey combination of feta, mozzarella, and farmer cheese; lobiani, bread stuffed with cilantro-and-anise-spiced beans; and tapluna, a baklava with honey and walnuts. The turnover is so high that you stand a good chance of buying something hot out of the oven.
