Well, this is unexpected news: both ~DELFINA~ and ~PIZZERIA DELFINA~ are closing for two weeks in January (1st-14th) for some much-needed kitchen renovations. Instead of going dark for two weeks, they’re keeping their staff gainfully employed and doing a one-week pop-up at the former Farina location (at 3560 18th St. at Dearborn), Delfina in Movimento. Kind of brilliant.
There will be special guest winemakers and somms and bartenders (cocktails!), classic Delfina dishes, pizzas, and some surprises too. And even though they are just taking reservations for dinner at the moment, walk-ins will be welcome (depending on space, of course).
The pop-up is running from Thursday January 4th-Thursday January 11th, and the current lineup includes top wineries like Scribe, Hirsch, and Robert Sinskey, with bartenders like David Curiel and Ian Adams (15 Romolo). It’s all subject to change as they secure more wineries and bartenders. The best way for guests to get the latest up-to-date info is via Instagram: @delfinasf and @pizzeriadelfina.
