After making it through the long (and, we're sure, arduous) permitting process, the bakery window on the side of Lori Baker and Jeff Banker's eponymous restaurant opened a few weeks back. Along with the butter-bound sweets and savories, Baker is selling three breads a day. The constant is a baguette; the other two change daily, and range from focaccia to challah.
