Bread Furst, now in construction, will open early in 2014. It will be a neighborhood bakery located in the upper northwest of Washington, serving Van Ness, Forest Hills, Tenley, Chevy Chase (and all others who find they like it). We hope—we think that many Washingtonians will like it as it will offer breads, pastries, desserts, morning foods for quick take-away, coffee, ice cream and soda fountain drinks, and a modest line of foods for take-home.
Although the opening of Bread Furst is being led by Mark Furstenberg, its staff will include bakers, pastry chefs, and savory chefs who have given long service to Washington.
This series of regular short essays will chronicle the development of Bread Furst, telling pretty frankly the story week by week of the emergence of a new small business.
