DINER: Pourhouse Crew & Chef J.C. Poirier Open “Pizzeria Farina” At Main And Prior

August 17, 2011.

Rarely do restaurants open on time, but Pizzeria Farina, as promised, opened its doors tonight at 915 Main Street (just off Prior next to The Cobalt). Since it’s just around the corner from our house we made a quick first pass to pick up some pies, which we made short work of in the park. Prices were very reasonable, and I don’t think we waited more than 15 minutes. It was cool seeing them immediately busy, a testament, no doubt, to the mean social media game they play. It’s way too soon to pass full judgment (first night and all), but I think their experimentation with crust paid off. I’ll be going a few more times before I give it a proper write up, either here or in the paper. Suffice it to say that I look forward to comparing it to others (eg. Campagnolo across the street) and attempting to place it in the burgeoning pantheon of Vancouver pizzerias. But there’s plenty of time for that. In any event, it sure is nice having another restaurant open in the hood. Keep ’em coming!
