A few programming notes for you: fans of the Neapolitan pizzas at ~CAPUTO~ will need to find another spot in the neighborhood. Scoop reports the restaurant from Marin’s Boca Pizzeria and Boca Tavern team has closed after six months in biz. And so, the bad juju of that space continues. 100 Brannan St. at Embarcadero.
Looks like there are some changes at ~CAFE DU NORD~: the Ne Timeas and Bon Vivants teams have decided to close the Viking Room, which operated like a 30-seat supper club in the space. They are going to use it for private events and other programming instead—stand by for announcements about future music and other public events. You can still order food elsewhere in Cafe du Nord. (Via Eater.)
Just in case you swing by ~COWGIRL CREAMERY~ in the Ferry Building Marketplace and see the cheese shop is closed, they are doing a renovation! The new design will have the cheesemongers in a central island stacked with whole wheels of cut-to-order artisan and farmstead cheeses. Yay, cheese island! The perimeter will be outfitted with ready-to-go cuts, small-format cheeses, and accompaniments. The shop is slated to reopen in June. During the closure, you’ll find a pop-up store in front of their current space with a select lineup of their favorite cheeses.
Sidekick Café & Milk Bar is also having a little refresh and will reopen on Friday May 6th.
