La Pinata owner looks to serve drinks by the waterfront

PITTSBURG — New restaurants are in the pipeline for the city, including a well-known drive-in and a bar and restaurant by the water.

On July 25, the Pittsburg City Council will hold a public hearing for a permit for full alcohol service at the Waterfront Grill and Cafe on Marina Boulevard.


Located in Suite A at 51 Marina Blvd., the Waterfront Grill and Cafe has been billed as an “American Diner Style” restaurant and will be owned and operated by Gerardo Rivera, who also co-owns and operates La Pinata, a Mexican restaurant on Bliss Avenue.

The space currently is permitted for a restaurant, Rivera is applying for a full alcohol permit, including beer and wine.

The Pittsburg Arts and Community Foundation, which operates the Railroad Book Depot and the Art Shack, moved to lease the space to Rivera in February of 2016 for a period of three years to fill the space that was vacated by Country Skillets, a daytime cafe serving traditional American fare, which shut down a month prior.

Before Country Skillets was Nana’s Place, a cafe serving traditional American comfort foods, which ceased operations in 2014.

A number of other restaurants are coming up in Pittsburg’s future. A Sonic Drive-In is already approved for the intersection of Loveridge Road and North Park Boulevard, next to Big O Tires.
