“Toast is having a moment right now.”
- Renato Poliafito of Baked

The newly opened sister bakery/cafe of Red Hook’s Baked is expanding their menu beyond sweets for their Tribeca location to include many savory items, including many different toast options. Owners Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito are self-proclaimed bread addicts with Renato having a special affinity for toast. “It’s having a renaissance.” Matt says the bread for the toast is currently being outsourced in Brooklyn at Almondine. “We are working with Hervé Poussot there. We have homemade nut butters, jams, cream cheese, avocado, and zucchini butter.”

Stop into Baked Tribeca to try their toast or visit one of Rento’s recommendations for these other places he says are "doing toast right."

“They have one of the best toasts I’ve ever had. It is soft scrambled egg with a little bit of hollandaise, mushrooms and their house-cured ham on toast. I could constantly eat this, it's delicious.”
