CPK's sad carbs
Some local restaurants are slacking when it comes to the breadbasket. Though entrées are just fine at many of these locales, staff overlooks a critical aspect of the dining-out experience. Bread is usually a diner's first taste of an eatery and sets the stage for everything else. The following is a list of five spots, in no specific order, that present sorry excuses for breadbaskets. Short Order generally likes all of these joints, but not their disappointing predinner loaves.

GreenStreet Café: Their basket of small, dry, and tough white bread is most often pushed aside. Diners mostly employ it to scoop up extra hummus or soup.

California Pizza Kitchen: Just blocks from several notable bakeries, CPK serves a sad stack of cold bread that's hard to chew and reminiscent of cardboard. There are also measly butter packets that otherwise are found at grimy coffeehouses.

Randazzo's Little Italy: This traditional Italian restaurant serves stale and forgettable white bread. Additionally, there's no butter, and the dipping concoction contains too much oil and is laced with jalapeños. 

Sergio's: It's a rule: Bread offered at Cuban restaurants is to be generously buttered, slightly greasy, and freshly pressed (read: warm). Sergio's arrives barely buttered, room temperature, and shameful.

Rosinella Italian Trattoria
: The pizza is great, but like other offenders, Rosinella serves  flavorless bread as hard and cold as the butter packets served next to it.
