With the departure of chef Angelo Auriana from ~RISTOBAR~, a new chef will be taking over, Michele Belotti from Italy. He has worked under the famed Paolo Frosio at Restaurant Frosio in Bergamo (Marc Vetri apprenticed at Frosio as a young cook), and was most recently a sous at Da Guido in Piemonte. Belotti originally came over to San Francisco for vacation, but has decided to move to San Francisco permanently and take the chef position. He begins November 14th.
In the meantime, Ristobar is launching a pizza special on the weekends: come by Sat-Sun from 3pm-5pm, and get any of their pizzas for $10. And it starts this weekend, yay.
