I recently wrote about this new slow-food bakery’s extraordinary lemon-curd morning bun for the Orange County Register. The sourdough, a throw-back to simpler times, is equally exciting. This little corner of Newport Beach keeps getting better and more interesting. One could easily and happily spend a long weekend in this neighborhood without ever feeling the desire to venture any farther into Orange County. That certainly wasn’t the case a couple of years ago.
