What’s New in the New Year


A whole new year! And S.B. foodies have a lot to look forward to (you know, once they get over their New Year’s diets). There’s the opening of the Public Market at Alma del Pueblo, now slated for spring, which will come complete with a solid slew of vendors, including — excitingly for carnivores — an outpost of Belcampo Meat Company, and — exciting for locavores and the legions of folk so smitten they’ll happily drive an hour each way for a pie — the restaurant that’ll anchor the project, Full of Life Flatbread. Then there’s the expansion of C’est Cheese, which should be finished …very soon. Expect full-service breakfast and lunch seven days a week in a café setting, as well as expanded catering service, and more of the tangy, gooey, chewy, soft, and stinky goodies that have made them an S.B. institution over the past 10 years. Bon appétit.
