In addition to the opening of ~PLATE SHOP~, there’s a lot more happening in Sausalito. BAR BOCCE, the pizzeria from the Real Restaurants Group, is targeting a March opening. The executive chef (and partner in the venture) is Robert Price (Buckeye Roadhouse, Bungalow 44). I was speaking with Bruce Hill of Bix (also in the Real family) about the pizza style, who said it’s going to be similar to the pizza you get at Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles (where pies are cooked slowly for about eight minutes) vs. Picco in Larkspur (two minutes).1250 Bridgeway, Sausalito.
The Inside Scoop reports that Paradise Bay will become SALITO’S probably sometime in April, a crab house and prime rib restaurant from the team behind North Beach’s Stinking Rose and Calzone’s. 1200 Bridgeway, Sausalito.
One closure: Eater reports PICCOLO TEATRO in Sausalito has closed.
Oh, and up in San Anselmo, according to the Scoop, co-owner Bruno Denis of L’APPART RESTO is reopening the restaurant on February 17th with a new chef (Alexandre de Jesus of Le Garage) and a more casual approach. It will reportedly be open for lunch and dinner Tue-Sat. 636 San Anselmo Ave., San Anselmo, 415-256-9884.
