After interminable delays, online baker Umber Ahmad has finally opened her long-awaited brick-and-mortar shop. The West Village bakery is the first physical destination for the entire Mah-Ze-Dahr line, including the crackly edged brownies, cocoa-cookie-crusted cheesecake, and brioche doughnuts that have earned Ahmad and her chef-partner Shelly Acuña Barbera a devoted following since Ahmad launched the brand in her apartment. Although Ahmad and Barbera have mostly sold their pastries online and shipped nationwide, a few select items had been available at Intelligentsia’s Chelsea coffee bar, and the brownie has become a staple at Colicchio’s ’wichcraft. But the new digs allow the partners to bake on site; to host events in a spacious back room; and especially to interact with customers face-to-face in a comfortable café setting. With its tufted banquette, stone display case, and outlet-equipped standing counters on either side of a passageway connecting front and back rooms, the elegant space befits the women’s handiwork. Expect menu additions like savory hand pies, the French almond-toast delicacy called bostock, and buttermilk biscuits. (And yes, there are gluten-free options.)
