Holy pepperoni, Sebastopol’s Barlow marketplace will soon be home to yet another noteworthy restaurant. Chef Mark Hopper, former executive chef for the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group, will open Vignette Pizzeria in Sebastopol’s Barlow this summer. Hopper’s Twitter feed is punctuated with pizzeria pix from coast to coast, marking his R&D progress from New York City (Motorino), Denver (Pizzeria Locale) and SF’s Pizza Del Poppolo and Una Pizza Napoletano (among others). The menu will include Neopolitan-style ‘zas along with seasonal antipasti, craft beers and wines and will have both indoor and outdoor seating. Look for a summer opening at 6750 McKinley St., Sebastopol.
But wait, we’re not done. Also coming soon to the Barlow: Ultra Crepes and The Nectary. Ultra Crepes has had a mobile kitchen for several years, offering both sweet and savory concoctions (what BiteClub wouldn’t do for a Palachinka with Nutella, crushed cookies and whipped cream). They’ll be taking up permanent residence at 6760 McKinley, #120. The Nectary will focus on pressed juices, smoothies, probiotic beverages, acai bowls and other simple foods. (6760 McKinley, #130).
