Panino perfetto

I just can’t get over how great all of the food is in San Fransisco. Really. Our first stop today was to Tartine, a well known bakery in the Mission District.

Owners Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson have created a masterpiece. Representing their life’s work and passion, theirs is a space well worth a visit if you’re visiting the city, not only because they won the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef and Baker, National, in 2008, but also because they bake bread in a wood-fired brick oven, and serve up perfect pastry all day long.

Sigh. I so wish such a place existed in Philadelphia … and so wish my vacation weren’t ending in five more days. 🙂
