We have an update on the new pizzeria inside Capeo. This from Chef Eric Isaac: “We are almost done with the construction. The oven was delivered last week, and we will start the curing process tomorrow. If all goes well we should be open for lunch and start the pizza menu on Monday, June 15.” For those counting, that’s less than three weeks.
