At the very foundation of Paulista is a belief in and a commitment to our local community. As we have planned, and planned, and planned some more for our opening, we have been guided by a dedication to build more than just a restaurant and more than just a craft beer taproom; first and foremost, we have dedicated ourselves to building an amazing gathering place for our community.
And it is in this spirit that we are incredibly excited to announce two partnerships between Paulista and local businesses!
When we open this summer, we will feature the wildly popular local organic cashew ice cream, Mr. Dewie’s! Ari Cohen, another Glenview Elementary School dad (along with Alex and Jesse), and his brother Andrew, have created an incredible product that even the most cynical of ice cream purists can’t help but love. And here’s the exciting part – we won’t just be “featuring” Mr. Dewie’s, we will actually have an 8-flavor “Dipping Station” in our restaurant where young and old can come and get an ice cream cone throughout the day and night. So yes, the Glenview district will now have an ice cream shop, as well as a Brazilian restaurant, and a craft beer taproom. We think you will agree that these are all things we need in the neighborhood!
For the last couple of months we have been working with Andrea Sessa, Kira Goodman and Helmina Kim from Studio M Architecture right here in Glenview. They have helped us craft an incredible floor plan and design that we can’t wait to bring to reality when we start our buildout in the next couple of weeks. The fact that they personally know our neighborhood and understand who our customers will be gives them the unique ability to not only put together a strong architectural plan for us, but to help us create something that will be an amazing fit for the community.
Again, we couldn’t be more excited about these partnerships with our Oakland friends and neighbors, and we look forward to working with them for years to come!
