Arsicault Bakery <Two> <Three> is located on Arguello Street in the Richmond District of San Francisco. It was recently named "Bakery of the Year" by Bon Appétit magazineTo quote Bon Appétit: "What does it take to stand out in a city of sourdough savants? One, and only one, thing: a croissant that’s simultaneously so preposterously flaky it leaves you covered in crumbs, so impossibly tender and buttery on the inside that it tastes like brioche, and so deeply golden that the underside is nearly caramelized." I could not have said it any better. Click on the image to see the full-size photograph.
