The Bakingtist will host a grand reopening to officially launch their new menu on Friday, August 11. The bakery is on a mission to share the science behind baking and recently added brand new sandwiches to its line up of breads and pastries.

What’s new on the menu?

The Bakingtist, which opened last December, has added a variety of new sandwiches (named after scientists!) and drinks to its menu of artisan breads, pastries and other made-from-scratch baked goods.

I tried “The Ruelle,” a new pretzel bread sandwich complete with bacon, egg, tomato and cheese on a freshly made bun. Curtis, our content producer intern and self described foodie, ordered “The Vittadini,” a roast beef sandwich with black truffle cream, onion, lettuce, tomato and roast beef on a fresh baguette. Here’s what he thought:

“When I was originally looking through The Bakingtist’s Facebook page to see what would be on their new menu, this sandwich was the first one that caught my eye. I wasn’t disappointed. Every ingredient was undeniably fresh, and the truffle sauce added a really savory flavor to top it all off.”

Why is it called “The Bakingtist?”

At the Bakingtist, you’ll feel like you’re back in chemistry lab but with better bites than your lunchbox Uncrustables. The bakery’s seating is composed of science lab tables, classroom chairs and classic school desks while posters of scientists adorn the walls.

The Bakingtist is on a mission: SHARE THE SCIENCE. The Bakingtist aims, through fun and community interaction, to share the science learned from meticulous testing of baked goods.
