Borrone MarketBar hosts pop-up, eyes late 2016 return

Uploaded: Jul 22, 2016
Cafe Borrone's shuttered sister restaurant, Borrone MarketBar, is returning briefly (again) for a pop-up market Friday and Saturday, July 22 and 23, in Menlo Park.

A sign posted in the 1010 El Camino Real restaurant’s window several weeks ago also indicates that the owners "hope to return in late 2016." Another image posted in the restaurant’s windows and on social media in March also advertised positions for Borrone MarketBar’s reopening.

Borrone MarketBar, which opened next-door to Cafe Borrone in 2014, suddenly closed last June. Co-owner Marina Borrone, who opened MarketBar with her husband and executive chef Josh Pebbles, said in December that it had closed due to a family illness.

The restaurant's popular focaccia, homemade pasta, prepared foods and other goods briefly returned in December for a two-day holiday pop-up market.

The restaurant is reviving the same concept this weekend. There will be four kinds of organic focaccia, a range of pastas and sauces, as well as rotisserie meats, seafood, sides and desserts for sale today, Friday, until 6 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
