A wood-burning pizza oven was installed near the bar at the new Wayzata restaurant Josefina. The oven quickly cooks Roman-style pizzas that are served out of a window to passersby on the Lake Street sidewalk. The takeout pizza operation, known as Pizza Fina, highlights the casual side of Josefina. (Sun photo by Jason Jenkins)
