This Friday, Forchetta/Bastoni–i.e., fork and stick–opens in what was, most recently, Pizzavino707. Previously, it was West County Grill and, before major renovations, the second home of Lucy’s Restaurant.
The long narrow space has been divided into two distinct restaurants.In the front– the patio, bar and lounge–you’ll find Bastoni serving Southeast Asian street food, with bahn mi, Thai noodles, Vietnamese noodles, curries and salads. Cocktails will feature kaffir lime leaf, Thai bird chiles and other unique ingredients. Bastoni will be open daily from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. for lunch, dinner and late night snacks. It will serve until midnight on Friday and Saturday. Prices will be moderate, from $6 to $14.
Forchetta, located in what was the main dining room, with a counter and wood-burning oven, will focus on rustic Italian fare. There will, of course, be pizza, along with other foods from the oven, plus pastas, risotto and more. Forchetta will be open only for dinner Thursday through Monday from 5 to 9 p.m. and until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Prices range from $8 to $28.
Reservations are recommended for Forchetta and should be made through OpenTable.com.
The upstair room is reserved for private functions, from meetings and lunches to special dinners.
Forchetta/Bastoni is located on the town plaza at 6948 Sebastopol Ave. in Sebastopol.
