Robert Lauriston's New Restaurant in East Bay - "Locanda da Eva"

Robert, could this be the true reason for your new positive outlook on life? ;-)

Congratulations and good luck on your new endeavor!!!

From the Chronicle's "Inside Scoop" section -

The space housing Zax Tavern, Mazzini Trattoria and, originally, Casa de Eva (2826 Telegraph Ave.) has sat vacant for more than a year since the last tenant, Maritime East, closed. Now, an intrepid out-of-work technology writer is taking a stab at the space.

Robert Lauriston, who has also written occasional restaurant reviews for SF Weekly, hopes to open Locanda da Eva by April. The first-time restaurateur is refurbishing the space, taking it back to its Mazzini decor and putting in new flooring. To head the kitchen, he's brought in Alex Placencia, formerly of Miss Pearl's Jam House in Oakland and Specchio in San Francisco. The fare will be traditional Italian, with lots of pasta dishes, seafood, Roman-style pizzas made in the restaurant's existing wood-fired oven and, of course, tiramisu.
