Washington, D.C., Bakers Revive The Classic Bakery Model

February 19, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Bakeries in the Washington, D.C., area that offered a little bit of everything – bread, cookies, brownies, muffins, etc. – lost their cachet in recent years, replaced by shops that catered to dessert trends (like cupcakes), fad diets and evolving shopping habits. But the pendulum is swinging back. Many of the newest entries in the D.C. bakery scene are once again following the classic model, and so far customers are pleased. The glass display cases in the new neighborhood shops are filled with traditional treats loaded with fat, sugar and carbs. An example is the latest venture of longtime Washington baker Mark Furstenburg. Bread Furst emphasizes crusty loaves of bread, and a large menu of sweet and savory delicacies that changes throughout the day.
