Hydraulic Hearth, the pizza-and-beer centered restaurant at Larkin Square, is inching toward the finish line.
Health inspectors and city code inspectors have been satisfied, owner Harry Zemsky said, with the liquor license to come.
“We hope to have family and friends in in a couple weeks,” said Zemsky. “I think conservatively we should be open by the end of November, but you never know.”
The building, at 716 Swan St., is across from Larkin Square area, where Food Truck Tuesdays have brought steady crowds of eaters during the summer. The long room has walls of stripped brick. The brick-oven pizza is at the back, surrounded by gleaming white tile and bar seating.
Tanks have been installed for the Community Beer Works satellite brewery on site. That probably won’t be running by time we’re open, but should be soon thereafter, Zemsky said.
