DINER: A Sneak Peek Inside J.C. Poirier’s Nearly Finished “Pizzeria Farina” On Main St.

August 6, 2011.


A few weeks ago Scout broke the news that the folks behind Pourhouse and chef Jean-Christophe Poirier (ex-Campagnolo, Chow) had joined forces and were working on a new pizzeria in the old Italian Job space at 915 Main St. just off Prior (next to The Cobalt)…

It’s a tiny spot with only a handful of seats, so they’ll be concentrating on take-out and delivery (by bicycle!). Apparently, J.C. and local pâtissier Paul Croteau have been working on perfecting the dough for the past six months. What they’ve come up with is a style similar to what you find in northern Italy (lighter and not as a chewy as Neapolitan). Other awesome things of note are that Craig Stanghetta is in charge of the design (see Meat & Bread, Bao Bei, Stackhouse) and the good folks at Glasfurd & Walker are doing the branding (see L’Abattoir, Meat & Bread, Bao Bei and Scout’s recent redesign). They are looking to open in mid-August.

As you can see from the shots above (landed in my inbox just now), they seem to be on track to meet their target opening date. “I’m really happy with the way everything is coming together,” J.C. says. “The design and layout of the space is exactly what I wanted and the first few pizzas turned out even better than we expected.”
