Grub Street broke the news last year that Gary Rulli of Ristobar fame, who already operates an Emporio Rulli Caf on the Stockton Street side of Union Square, had his sights set on the kiosk space on the opposite side, next to the TIX Bay Area booth. Now Tablehopper confirms that the project is finally moving forward, and it will be called Bancarella. Rulli plans to serve a small menu of breakfast pastries and snacks, like tuna tartare, lasagna, panini, and salumi plates, as well as espresso drinks and wine by the glass. They're trying to get open by Monday, December 17, and yes, this means Rulli will have a monopoly on tourist lounging on the square. [Tablehopper]
