He opened Sullivan Street Bakery in New York’s SoHo in 1994 to bring high-quality, slow-rise-fermentation Italian bread to America. The popular bakery later relocated to Manhattan’s West Side and expanded its bread styles and menu; in 2009, Lahey opened an authentic Italian pizza restaurant, simply called Co., nearby. His cookbook, My Bread: The Revolutionary No-Work, No-Knead Method (2009), launched a new homemade bread movement and won praise from New York Times critic Mark Bittman and Martha Stewart. His new book, The Sullivan Street Bakery Cookbook, is due out in November 2017. (RAILROAD) ILLUSTRATED BY JASON SCHOEN New York By Rail | 21
