Walnut Creek’s reliable Italian cafe, 54 Mint Forno, is having a makeover.
The house owners behind the well known bakery and pasticceria, which has been churning out decadent bomboloni and fluffy foccacia for eight several years, is turning the space into a second Bay Location location of their Roman comfort and ease food items cafe, Montesacro.
A letter posted on the doorway at 1686 Locust St. described that the impetus for the adjust came as a outcome of acquiring a complete liquor license. Seem for drinks, a new menu and new glimpse someday in Could or early June.
Montesacro, which has areas in San Francisco and Brooklyn, N.Y., specializes in pinsa, an ancient Roman-style pizza created from soy, rice and heirloom wheat flour. The mixture yields a thick but mild and ethereal dough with a crispy crust. Glance for clean, seasonal component toppings plucked from small farms equally in Italy and listed here in Northern California.
In addition to 9 kinds of pinsa ($17-$20), showcasing toppings like rosemary potato puree, buffalo mozzarella and dwelling lamb sausage, the Montesacro menu also features paninis, Roman antipasti ($12-$17), like burrata imported from Puglia with Cantabrian anchovies and a range of five housemade desserts ($5-$12).
And not to worry, major-notch espresso and Italian wines will continue to be in abundance.
