The addition of molasses distinguishes orlovsky rye (24 oz., $2.50), one of four styles distributed by Brooklyn-based Sibstar Bread. Like the bakery's borodinsky and darnitsky ryes and "white Russian" bread, the orlovsky comes wrapped in a plastic bag that features a black bear. He's all smiles: The bread lines are surely much shorter today than during the Cold War, or even in the days of perestroika.
