Hello Jean,

I buy Billy Bread loaves @ Elwood Thompson's and also eat a lot of it when  @ Mamma Zu's.  Elwood get morning deliveries, so there are not guarentees of them having it in the evenings or late afternoons on the weekends.  They serve it at many other Richmond Restaurants including the Jefferson, Edo Squids and Six Burner.  Their bakery "I think" is at 1 South Allen Street, Richmond.  I say I think since I saw an article of late that makes me think that Billy might be cooking out of a Restaurant he co-owns with his mom - Aziza's on Main.  Their number is 804-344-1523.   My own bread baking has slowed my consumption of Billy Bread, but has not stopped it!
