Bonus Restaurant Crisis Coverage

Not to be outdone by the Times, the Chronicle also penned a piece on the hardships currently afflicting local restaurants over the weekend, discussing the changing attitudes towards bread in restaurants: "At Nordstrom's Cafe Bistro, lunchtime servers don't automatically bring bread; diners have to ask for it, although it's still complimentary. Nearby, at Boulette's Larder, patrons pay $5 for a plate of assorted slices ... And while most restaurateurs say they have no intention of charging for bread - at least in the foreseeable future - diners will see their checks rise to account for high flour prices in other items, like pasta and pizza."
