EaterWire: Helicopter Heroics Rescue Kuleto North!

TOMALES BAY—Up in Marin County, storm damage has closed Pat Kuleto's most recently-opened restaurant for the better part of the last week, but due to some Kuleto-scale heroics, Nick's Cove is expected to reopen by the weekend: "Due to the unexpected fall of a power pole into a nearby marsh, much of the coastal town of Marshall, which stretches along the curves of Highway One, has been out of power. According to local sources, power could not be restored to residents or Pat Kuleto's latest baby, restaurant and B&B Nick's Cove, until a helicopter could be brought in to lift the damaged lines; Quite a feat considering the weather of late!" There are also reports that Kuleto's so-called wine "dungeon" flooded, though the exact damage is still unknown. We're also still awaiting word on the status of the various stuffed carcasses.

THE MISSION—Another Italian restaurant is headed to the Mission. The former Blue Room Gallery space at Mission and 19th will become an offshoot of Columbus Avenue's Ristorante Gondola. The owner is supposedly Venetian, so northern Italian cuisine is probably to be expected; the working name, for now, is Specchio. Work has already begun, but it's still several months away.
