Miami could live by bread alone if it came from Zak Stern, aka the “Baker” or maybe the “Beard.” He’s a baking purist whose crackling-crusted sourdough is sought after up and down the Atlantic and bragged on by any restaurant seeking immediate artisan cred. Same with his challah and devotion to kosher tradition. Come for coffee, breakfast, soup and salmon reubens on what else, ZTB bread. And take some home fresh from the oven.
