We have been reaching out to the ~CAPUTO~ team since April, and now they’re finally ready to release some details on the project. Coming to the former Sutra and temporary Slanted Door space, it’s slated to open in early October. As previously reported, the project comes from partners Sam Ramadan and Shah Bahreyni of Boca Tavern and Boca Pizzeria in Marin. It’s a California-style pizzeria and trattoria, with housemade pastas, wood-fired pizzas, and entrées from the wood grill. On the menu, look for fresh Italian options and some unusual proteins like braised lamb tongue. There are also classics from the wood-fired grill, like grilled octopus, porcini-dusted Wagyu steak, and chicken.

There is a full liquor license, and cocktails come from John Oyarzon, while the wine list comes from Paul Einbund and will include both local and international pours. The bar, which offers views of the bay, will have seating for 17, and a front patio offers seating for 40. As for the interior, it seats 100, and the design comes from Michael Brennan (Jardinière, Baker and Banker, Fleur de Lys, Farallon). There isn’t an exact opening date yet, but we’ll let you know when it’s set. 100 Brannan St. at Embarcadero, 415-543-9720.
