Bob Krajewski and Lynette Moser, the former chef/owners of Lily Bistro in Rockland, plan to move back to Maine and open a community-supported bakery and pizzeria called Community Oven.
The couple will be launching a Kickstarter campaign soon to raise money to start the business. They already have a space picked out that has a wood-fired oven where Bob will be able to bake his homemade sourdough and make the crust for the pizza.
They also hope to start a series of community “family meals” that would work like community-supported agriculture.
The couple hopes to open the pizzeria by spring.
Krajewski and Moser had to close Lily Bistro in 2011, after the city closed the street in front of the restaurant for two months while it fixed the water system. They were forced to move back to Boston.
The new space they have found in Rockland is available only for a limited time, so that’s why they are asking for help from kickstarter.com
More details to come….until then, check out their Facebook page.Tweet
