Landstrasser Hauptstrasse 4
A very short walk from
Wien Mitte train and U3 and U4 metro station
Joseph Genuss reminds me of Breadline D.C., in Washington D.C.,
on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, near the White House, founded by
the legendary Mark Fürstenberg who brought artisan bread
to D.C. in the late 90s.
The "bread lines" back then, at his first "Marvelous Market" bakery
on Wisconsin Avenue NW, were so long, and demand so big,
there were times when he had to limit purchases to two loaves per customer.
The Russian Pravda published a picture of people standing in line
at Mark's bakery, dutifully headlining it with "breadlines in America's capital" -
or so the story goes.
