New Rochelle came to know (and love) the artisanal breads of Jean Yves LeBris when he was baking at the Bread Factory, a part-commercial/part-retail business at 30 Grove Street that LeBris debuted with a partner. Le Bris has moved on to a solo career. A French born and trained artisanal bread baker with more than 50 years of experience baking and selling breads to some of the biggest names in New York City and Westchester County, Jean now bakes his own line of artisanal breads that include authentic French Baguettes, Ficelles, Italian Paesano and Ciabatta.
His stand at the market is always busy and often sells out so come early so you don’t experience the pain of having no Pain.
