Cheese Festival Hits Sonoma, Another Foccacia Bakes, More!

COMING ATTRACTIONS - The fifth annual California Artisan Cheese Festival takes place this weekend with more local and regional artisans than ever before. Also: Laura Werlin, Kristine Kidd and several other writers will be on site signing their tomes. The event takes place at the Sonoma County Sheraton and there are still tickets remaining here.

CHINA BASIN- Since Specialty's shuttered on Berry Street, an array of food trucks have been doling out lunch at the address. It'll have to come to a stop though, when Foccacia moves in. The first stage of the mini-chain outpost's opening should begin in the next week or so. [SFoodie]

WINE COUNTRY - David Fink and the Mirabel—the same group that purchased the Le Mars Hotel earlier in conjunction with Bill Foleyhave pulled out of the Yountville's new Hotel Luca. It sounds as if operations won't be affected at its well-liked restaurant Cantinetta Piero. Do let us know if you see things changing up there. [ISSF]

BERNAL HEIGHTS - The Liberty Cafe is hosting a special dinner in the cottage that serves as its bakery and wine bar on April 7th. It's a lovely looking $70 six-courser. Call the restaurant for reservations. [EaterWire]

THE MARINA - Yes, Erik Hopfinger is busy with the Long Bar project, but he's also creating a new menu for The Republic with refined, playful versions of American comfort fare, similar to what he was known for at Circa. [ISSF]
