Hayashi, an Emily Luchetti protégé, will be doing all her baking
out of the new kitchen, allowing her to expand beyond the cookies and
small treats she sells from her window on Folsom (which will remain
open, by the way). She plans to bake breakfast pastries, breads, and
sandwich rolls, as well as more elaborate cakes and tarts. The space
came with a pizza oven, so Hayashi will also be doing individual
Roman-style pizzas at lunch, which she first began baking at Splendido.
"By no means are we throwing our hat into the pizza ring," she says. The
partners are working on beer and wine license, and eventually hope to
do dessert pairings not just with wine but with tea and coffee as well.
With most of the inspections out of the way, the soft opening is
scheduled for October 21. Coffee and pastries should start then, and
Hayashi hopes to roll out the full menu by mid-November.
