Uchi/Uchiko Team Strikes Out in New Direction
Pizza parlor and bake shop coming to Sunset Valley in 2014

According to today's press release, the new concept will be "part pizza parlor, part bakery, and part culinary workshop, where guests can dine in or take out from the adjoining bakeshop." I'm somewhat curious about how Philip Speer's talent for deconstructing desserts with molecular gastronomy gadgets will play in a suburban bakeshop, but maybe those tools will be left behind in the Uchi kitchen.
“This is really a passion project for us. The idea of a place where we can riff on classics and the things we all grew up with. Nostalgic food. Great housemade breads and sandwiches, pizzas, exciting shared plates and, of course, great desserts,” Philip Speer commented for the press release. Should be a very interesting debut.
