Subject:  Netilat Yadaim
Message:  Kavod Harav:

May one wash hands in the bathroom sink (without "having gone" to the bathroom first - I know there are special rules for this), dry them outside the bathroom, and then recite the netilat yadaim bracha before making Hamotzi?

Or, does the fact that one is washing in the bathroom make the washing become void or nullified for purposes of Hamotzi?

Reply:  you can wash your hands in the bathroom. Then, dry them off outside the bathroom while saying the Beracha.
