If the team behind Greek spot Psomi put on a musical, all of the lead roles would be wildly talented breads who could carry the whole show singing a capella. While that’s clearly not possible, the carbs here are excellent, especially at weekend brunch. There are stuffed pitas, honey-drenched loukoumades, solid everything bagels, and even a horiatiki salad that comes with a crusty baguette baked that morning. Of course there’s a bread basket (with seasonal berry jam and clarified butter), and of course you must order it. The cozy dining room, filled with prints of Greece and alabaster chandeliers, may be full by mid-morning, but three stone patios provide plenty of shade outdoors. Be sure to pick up a cranberry walnut boule from their bakery on the way out.
