Bake Chad Robertson sees his restaurant, which opened a few years after the bakery of the same name, as less a static institution and more an evolving theater for showcasing the creativity of his staff, visiting chefs, and his own restless enthusiasms. Last year he brought in chef Nicolaus Balla—born in Michigan, schooled in Budapest, trained in Japan—and together they changed everything about the place but the name. In August 2012 they expanded, adding shiny, Italian-built bread ovens and a lunch business based on Danish smørrebrød (open-faced sandwiches) and puffy Hungarian fried flatbreads called lángos.
