Rida Shahin’s soft and chewy salted ciabatta is good enough that you could eat it all by itself and have a perfectly satisfying lunch. But now that the popular wholesale baker has expanded to sandwiches and a full line of pastries, from crispy-and-chewy chocolate-chip cookies to apricot-cardamom tarts, you can have a nice lunch in his café. But a word to the wise: Don’t forget the bread for home.
