West County Grill rises again as Pizza Vino 707

West County Grill reopens

pizzavino.jpgBiteClub’s been hearing for a while that former West County Grill partner Stephen Singer has been thinking of reopening the shuttered downtown restaurant — but now we’ve got confirmation.

After sitting silent for nearly a year (despite several top chefs sniffing around at the location), the downtown Sebastopol restaurant will be reborn as Pizza Vino 707, we hear, within the next few weeks. The website doesn’t give much info, other than touting wood-fired pizzas (which makes sense, since the grill spent oodles on a state-of-the-art pizza oven), cocktails and “daily specials” on the plaza.

It’s still a bit unclear who’ll be in the kitchen, but insiders say Singer, who lives in Sebastopol, will continue to be a major player. The restaurant has been advertising on Craigslist for a few weeks for servers and kitchen staff.

Opening Soon: Pizza Vino 707, 6948 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol
