It was a nifty idea to take the beloved flatbread of Emilia-Romagna-previously available only at such regional Italian restaurants as Malatesta-and use it to launch a sandwich joint. Ranging from $5.25 to $7.25, the piadina sandwiches are a bit meager for the price, but probably represent the precise number of calories you should be consuming for lunch. They're named for various Italian regions in a way that suggests that Italians don't know much about any region other than their own: the Umbria, for example, which adds balsamic vinegar to salami and arugula, or the prosciutto-stuffed Napoli.
