Last week, Caffe Primo co-owner Tony Riviera gave us a hint of what's to come at the Barker Block's Primo Cucina, a new restaurant and gourmet market opening in the Arts District property this fall. Today, we have some official flackage:
It will feature a large, open-space floor plan within a classic brick building directly adjacent to the courtyard in the Barker Block community. Customers may view the cooking and food preparation demonstrations of gelato, homemade pasta and wood burning oven baked pizzas. Gourmet market offerings will include fresh meats, homemade pastas, homemade condiments and sauces, cheeses and breads and an assortment of fine wines, spirits and beer along with grocery items such as prepared foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, cereals, sodas, bottled water and dairy products and a small assortment of household items.Soon Downtown will be awash in artisanal olive oils and gelato: Bottega Louie is expected to open at 7th and Grand this summer.
