Bergami’s Will Bring “Carb-Less Pizza” to Rhode Island Row

bergamislogo_final[1]Is a pizza without dough really a pizza?

At Bergami's, a new fast casual pizzeria opening next spring at the Rhode Island Row development in Brentwood, they want you to answer that with a "yes." In addition to traditional, whole wheat, and gluten-free crust options, the restaurant will offer a "carb-less" version made out of chopped cauliflower and mozzarella crisped in the oven.

Bergami's is the brainchild of Mark Bergami, who was previously involved in Bethesda's Haven Pizzeria and at one point worked in management for Domino's, helping to turn around struggling stores. The concept of his new eatery will be similar to places like &pizza and Custom Fuel, where guests choose their crust, sauce, and toppings, and the pizza is then baked in a 90-second oven.  

Bergami says he was inspired to have a carb-less option after seeing the popularity of Chipotle's burrito bowls—all the burrito stuffings minus the tortillas. He even experimented with pizza bowls, throwing all the toppings in a foil bowl then running it through the oven. "It was good, but I didn't think it was something that could sell," Bergami says. Ultimately, he ditched the idea in favor of the cauliflower "crust."

Bergami swears his creation looks and tastes like a pizza, but unfortunately, it doesn't have the same structural integrity, meaning you'll probably have to eat it with a fork rather than pick it up with your hands.

"It sounds like a funny idea," Bergami says, "but I think it's one of those things that you're going to have to try."

    But she started having second thoughts when she found out where they would be shopping: Costco."I said, 'Yo, what? Are you kidding me?'" Brown recalled. "Where are you going to try them on in the patio furniture section?"But Brown's doubts evaporated as she watched Los Angeles designer Kirstie Kelly and a team of bridal consultants fawn and fret over Russo as she tried on wedding gowns at Costco's Los Feliz, Calif., store.After trying on just two, Russo had found the one: a $700 satin trumpet gown with a ruched bodice and draped skirt. She'll pay extra to have it customized with rhinestones and embellished cap sleeves."I like the story behind getting my dress from Costco," said Russo, 46, a movie costumer. "I think it's kind of funny."Along with giant wheels of cheese and jumbo packs of toilet paper, Costco Wholesale Corp. is now hawking designer wedding dresses. But don't worry you don't have to buy them in bulk, and you won't find them near the casket display.The discount warehouse club is the latest major retailer to break into the wedding gown business, joining mall staples J. Crew Group Inc., Ann Taylor, White House Black Market and Urban Outfitters Inc. that have launched bridal collections.The Costco line features six dresses designed by Kelly, who said she was selling the gowns for 40 percent less than the normal retail price. They range in price from $700 for the dress Russo selected to $1,400 for a satin hand beaded gown with a sweetheart neckline and detachable jeweled cap sleeves.New niche, little riskAt the Los Feliz store, customers pushing loaded shopping carts gawked as they passed the bridal salon, which was set up by the cash registers next to 6 foot high stacks of Hershey's chocolate bars, buckets of licorice and bags of Kirkland Signature Trail Mix.For retailers, introducing wedding collections is a way to add a new product niche with little risk many carry bridalwear only online; Costco is selling its dresses at temporary four day trunk shows one store at a time starting in California.And with brides to be strapped for time and increasingly pitching in for their own weddings, the stores say they're making the all important dress selection process more convenient, casual and cut rate.Although wedding gowns and Costco seem like an odd match, Chief Executive Jim Sinegal said the company has carried a variety of high end fashion items, including Coach handbags, and recently sold a $259,000 diamond in one of its stores. The Issaquah, Wash., chain's wedding line also includes engagement rings, invitations, floral centerpieces and honeymoon vacation packages."That's what Costco is all about the Waterford crystal next to the tires and mayonnaise," Sinegal said. "When we're doing the best job is when we have those products that the customer doesn't expect."The trunk shows have been attracting not just brides on budgets but stylish shoppers such as Antonia Jones, an actress and film student from Studio City who arrived for her bridal appointment at Costco wearing navy Christian Louboutin pumps and toting a Fendi handbag."With the economy the way it is, you want to have a beautiful dress for your wedding day, but you wear it one day, and it's not cost effective," she said.Of buying a dress at Costco, she said: "I tongue in cheek make fun of it, but everyone wants to save money now. I don't think people would know, and you know what, I don't think it's a bad thing."For 'realistic brides'Others are more skeptical.Although the bridal dresses sold at Costco are designer gowns, Maro Ghoukassian, owner of Caprice Bridal Boutique in Glendale, said it would be like if someone "bought Ferragamo shoes and then saw that Payless was selling them."
