Now! Now we can ultimately dispel the rumors and validate what is heading on in the Bellecour room now that Gavin Kaysen has left Wayzata.
Can validate: Daniel del Prado (of Colita, Martina, and the new Rosalia) is launching Josefina in the room, a collaborative partnership involving del Prado, his former Chef de Delicacies from Birch Steve McMullen, and Aaron Switz.
Josefina will be a Roman/Italian restaurant with a large wooden-fired pizza oven mounted in the primary home, nearer to wherever Bellecour’s personal dining was found adjacent to the bar location. The front bakery location is being redesigned as a swift services counter with a takeout window open up to the road. Acknowledged as Pizza Fina, this location will present pizzas, treats, and gelato which should be a wonderful seize for anybody planning to cling out this summertime in the redesigned waterfront plaza (there is now some action down there).
“Steve was also with me at Bar La Grassa, so we will have entertaining with pastas. And he has possession in this much too, so it really is not just my place,” del Prado instructed me. The prepare is to rework some stream with the addition of the pizza oven, but to honor the good bones of a single of Wayzata’s longest jogging restaurant areas.
They are operating challenging in the room, and if all goes very well the Pizza Fina window will open up initial for takeout, with the fuller Josefina room opening this spring.
