11-11-2011 Forchetta / Bastoni Opens In Sebastapol

Remodel work is nearing completion at Forchetta/Bastoni –come see how we have created two distinct kitchens and dining spaces within the 6,000 square foot building.  Design of the space focuses on the use of reclaimed and repurposed materials, from dynamic “window artwork” to lighting hand made of wine bottles, mason jars and sticky rice baskets; warm booths and tables fashioned out of repurposed doors and spectacular “art chandeliers” made by renowned Sonoma County artist Allis Teegarden.

The Bastoni loft lounge offers the perfect spot to relax on a low sectional made of re-purposed shipping palettes topped with pillows covered in Thai sarongs.  Bastoni will serve Southeast Asian street food in an energetic and colorful setting complete with bar, lounge, patio and table seating.  Its menu highlights SE Asian specialties including Bastoni’s famous Banh Mi, Thai style wet noodles, Vietnamese dry noodles, a daily curry and delicious salads. Most dishes offer a choice of protein & all are reasonably priced from $6-14.  The Bar at Bastoni features specialty cocktails using unique flavors & fresh ingredients such as kaffir lime leaf and Thai bird chili.

Starting 11/11/11, Bastoni will be open from 11:30am until 10pm daily for lunch, dinner and late night bites (until midnight on Friday and Saturdays.) Forchetta offers soul warming rustic Italian food in an inviting setting with full view of the wood-fired pizza oven and grills. Dine on regional Italian classics from antipasti and bruschetta to housemade pasta and risotto, wood-fired options including thin crust pizza and bisteka, or the house specialty soul greens. Forchetta’s booths are the perfect spot for a cozy date or to share a family meal of comfort food during winters’ cold nights. Prices range from $8-$28.  Forchetta is open for dinner 5 nights weekly – Thursday through Monday from 5pm-9pm, until 10 on Friday & Saturday.
