A popup pizzeria on Bainbridge Island will become a permanent restaurant in November.

Bruciato, a gourmet pizza popup created by Hitchcock chef Brendan McGill and partner Brandon Thompson, is taking over a renovated space in the former Winslow Hardware building.

687697According to a news release, the 2,000-square-foot restaurant will provide seating for 75, with another 15 spots at the bar.

The interior design showcases exposed beams and metal that “recall the building’s history,” and white marble that “lightens it up a bit.”

Bruciato will feature wood-fired Neapolitan “pizze” and more modern pies, with an emphasis on authenticity. Dough will be mixed by hand, tomatoes imported from Italy and salami cured in house.

The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and stay ope until 1:30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Bruciato isn’t the only new eatery McGill has in the works. He plans to open a Café Hitchcock north of Seattle’s Pioneer Square in early 2017.

No longer Garguile’s, the Red Apple on Perry Avenue will debut Oct. 3 under new ownership.

The East Bremerton grocery store changed hands at the end of August when its longtime owners, the Garguile family, declined to renew a lease on the building.

Perry Avenue Mall owner Michael Thai stepped in to operate the grocery. A grand reopening event is scheduled for 4 p.m. Oct. 3. Mayor Patty Lent and Bremerton Chamber of Commerce officials will attend.

The Garguiles ran the Red Apple for more than 25 years. Thai is looking for a new owner for the Perry Avenue shopping center.
