Eli Zabar’s E.A.T. has a sweet, rich, yeasted multigrain bread, studded with cranberries and walnuts, that Non Cognomina could nosh on from morning to midnight. It’s lovely toasted for breakfast, served with cheese, or, NC confesses, as a special late-night snack with a nice thick spread of butter.
Other baked treats from hound perennials: chocolate-cherry loaf from Amy’s Bread, raisin-walnut bread from Sullivan Street Bakery, and chocolate bread from Balthazar.
