Goings on in Downtown San Anselmo. Bridge Place Pizza opens in former Cucina space.


Since we announced that Cucina would close and be replaced by an artisan pizza restaurant, we have been keeping an eye on the space and noticing the steady progress.  On my daily walk late last week, I found the door to the former Cucina open, with a fire blazing in the brick pizza oven. The new Bridge Place Pizza was open for a trial run, with several satisfied-looking diners enjoying their meals. While I took photos, they continued eating their pizzas! Tonight, again, it is open for the convenience of families attending the last Friday night Picnic on The Plaza of this summer season (just across the street), and anyone else who is fortunate enough to be in the area. The schedule will be determined in the near future and we expect to see the new restaurant open on a more regular basis. Watch for more news on this! Above are some pictures of the evolution of the current restaurant project, which is operated  by Buck Minitch, also owner of True North Pub and Grill up the street. Below is a photo of the former Cucina. We wish Buck a lot of luck on his new restaurant and welcome Bridge Place Pizza to Downtown!

I saw this place too, but my wife and I had just eaten. When we went back looking for it... it was closed. Now True North is closed too. Old Bubba's has been shuttered for quite some time now. I met the mover and shaker behind all this at his place True North and while he seemed like quite a nice guy, I am pretty annoyed that his "entrepreneur" spirit has managed to close every restaurant in downtown SA that I liked.
