Homey and polished? Sean Weinberg will leave those attributes at his Restaurant Alba in Malvern.
For his next restaurant, he's using such adjectives as grungy and edgy.
Biga Pizza + Beer, which will take the ground floor of a building just off the intersection of County Line Road, Glenbrook Avenue, and Bryn Mawr Avenue in Bryn Mawr, will specialize in wood-fired pizza, a few pasta, small plates, and sandwiches. A solid craft beer selection will include growlers.
Interior will be brick-walled with an open kitchen, the better to see the Renato 700.
Running the kitchen will be exec chef Steve Fulmer, a former Alma sous chef whose resume includes the old Alison's at Blue Bell as well as stages at top pizzerias such as Zavino in Center City and Roberta's in Brooklyn - which is inspiring the pizza and the concept.
Biga, slang for a dough starter, will be open mornings for coffee and sweet zeppoli.
Projected opening is early March.
