It is not open yet, but a new mediterranean-tapas-deli restaurant is coming to Venice. The sign is a bit Ralph Steadman-ish, so it will be interesting to see what these folks plan on serving up and how gonzo the tapas/ deli idea turns out to be. Not much to relate besides it is coming to town. It appears to have nice big french windows that open so the window seats may be nice.
Venice needs a really good Deli like Santa Monica’s Bay Cities or Hollywood’s Greenblats. Jerry’s Deli is a total rip off and not that great but they do have everything you could imagine (I’ll get around to blogging that soon), Abbot’s is pretty good but can be hit and miss, Danny’s is ho-hum in my opinion, and Stroh’s Gourmet just doesn’t have a huge variety. Seriously, is it all that hard to make a great sandwich?
