If the Simpsons opening sequence looks more like fluffy bread loaves than clouds to you, Sullivan Street Bakery should be your go-to neighborhood spot in Hell’s Kitchen. This counter-service bakeshop, which is part-cafe and part-pizzeria, works well for a quick lunch slice or a coffee date with someone you want to impress without looking like you’re trying too hard. And since this location of Sullivan Street is a small, all-white room with high ceilings and lots of natural light, it’s ideal for daydreaming about flying focaccia.
