Turns out Pitfire Pizza's Paul Hibler isn't just backing Jason Neroni's forthcoming Superba Snack Bar, he's created an entire "restaurant incubator" called Gonzo Food Corp to help fund similar chef-driven, artisanal projects. On the heels of Superba opening in Venice, a neighboring sibling, Superba Food & Bread, will debut. Hibler describes it as a "cross between Tartine in San Francisco and Blue Ribbon Bakery" in New York, that will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and serve as a full retail bakery - and even have bicycle bread delivery. Superba Snack Bar is scheduled to open in July; the bakery, later this year. And Pitfire is also expanding: At least four more locations are in the works. [Via NRN]
