Jay Jerrier sent word this morning that they're firing up the big white oven at the new Cane Rosso White Rock (7328 Gaston Ave.) tonight for the first night of official pizza business.
"Seeing as it is raining and temps are supposed to drop down into the 40s with high winds, it seemed like a really good idea to open a restaurant," explains Jerrier.
There are still a lot of the minor incidentals to work out, like: testing the fire alarm (will happen by game time though, no worries), signage, patio furniture, a tweak of the A/C system, etc. But who really cares about that? All in good time ...
Tonight they open at 5 p.m. with appetizers, salads, pizzas and desserts, but no sandwiches or pasta just yet. Brunch will start Mother's Day weekend and, Jerrier adds, "We'll likely roll out the entire menu by then."

"We are not taking any reservations for White Rock just yet," Jerrier says. "First come, first served.
We are beer & wine only, but we do have a menu of Fancy Dranks that are beer and wine based "mocktails" along with white and red sangria. Make sure to stop at the bar and ask Burns to make you something awesome."
You heard the man, Burns. Make us something awesome.
