NFN, but there must be someplace in NC with good bread.
Is it too much to ask for good NY, NJ Italian, Portuguse, French bread?

Let's here it, where are the good bread stores or do we have to trek back North for good bread?

Lowes Foods carries Anthony's Italian bread from NJ. (at least the one in Mooresville does). Go early, especially on weekends. It sells out quickly.

I've lived in Thomasville for almost 5 years now and have pretty much given up eating bread--every brand I've tried is awful--but my neighbors goats seem to love it. I've heard that a newish bakery in Greensboro called Ollie's Bakery (also one in W-S) has good bread, but I haven't made the trip there yet.

Ollie's in W-S is good, but expensive. I miss CA sourdough bread and I have gotten it there, but it is a special treat because of the price. I certainly wouldn't make a long trip for it. Since I have moved here I have found that I am cooking more things at home like pizza dough, etc. I miss more than good Italian food; I also miss Thai, sushi and Mexican. It is all just so, so here....But, I have never had such good fried chicken and fried green tomatoes!!! Maybe you can fall in love with biscuits instead of Italian bread?

Well, while I was in L.A., I missed the thin-crust sourdough that I could get in San Francisco. I finally found it in L.A. at Vitello's restaurant — hot out of the oven, no less. However, last time I went there, the owners (this is a guess) had apparently retired and turned the restaurant over to the younger set, and the bread looked to be pre-packaged from a store. <sigh>

enlightenme, where are you getting the California sourdough?

There was also the bread (and absolutely sublime peach scones) from Big Sky Bakery in Oklahoma; this stuff was amazing. Couldn't get it in L.A. I guess the time might come when I beg them to ship to us.

So there's stuff I miss from wherever. Never had a fried green tomato, so I'll have to try that — and fried chicken and biscuits are a delight any time.

I agree that most of the food here in central NC is so-so, maybe it can be described as mediocre. I've also been cooking a lot more at home, making my own pizza (with anchovies) and things that I've been missing. I don't care for biscuits, they're too doughy, but I agree that the fried chicken is good.

I've been eating at one store or another of Authentic New York Style Pizza or Authentic New York Style Pizza which have a few stores from Jacksonville to Charlotte. I don't work for them and I am not Italian but except for one store that I've been to, they are very much a family business. Especially the Huntersville location which is close to Northlake Mall in Charlotte.

I mention this because it would seem good people to ask that kind of question of.

When will people learn that when you leave an area, you cannot expect EVERY food item associated with that area to be in your new state? it is not North Carolina's "responsibility" to stock every single kind of food you are used to having "back home". If it is so important to you, don't move here, sheesh.
