Remarkable Breads is now the parent company of Bread Furst, a neighborhood bakery that will open early in 2014. It is an effort being led by Mark Furstenberg, a long-time Washingtonian who in 1990 opened Marvelous Market on upper Connecticut Avenue and in 1997 The BreadLine downtown near the White House.

Bread Furst will be a bakery with breads and desserts, ice cream, and a soda fountain. It will offer coffee, morning pastries, and breakfast sandwiches in the morning and will make as well a modest line of foods for take-home in the evening.
