[superlative] Market?

I remember from around the year 1999-ish, Washington DC had a food shop that sold prepared foods and baked goods, including probably the best brownies in the world. The name was "______ Market" where "______" is something I can't remember but something along the lines of awesome, miraculous, etc. Someone please help scratch my (memory) itch.

Response by poster: P.S. I think it was located around Dupont Circle.

Response by poster: Thank you ArbitraryAndCapricious! That's it!

Now that I'm armed with the name, I'm sad that a search returned this.

The owner went on to found (and then sell) Breadline, and he's got a new thing called Bread Furst. I don't know if it's good.

Bread Furst is excellent. Try the canales. Baguettes are top notch as well.

We used to call it "Marvelous Markup", but the tuna on olive bread sandwich was outstanding. Used to splurge on it for lunch at their short-lived Bethesda location c. 1996.

Breadline has declined markedly since Furst left - can confirm that Bread Furst, despite the stupid name, is good.
