(I couldn’t resist.)
Yo, meet the newest contributor to Yo! Venice…Johnnie Jenkins! Johnnie is THE go-to guy about everything and anything happening in the food & wine scene in Venice – so we are thrilled he wants to blog for us! Here is the first post of what we hope will be a regular feature on Yo! Venice!
Robin’s Nest, our wonderful little "Quality Convenience Market" on the last block of Venice, closed a couple months back. Ronen Helmann, the super outgoing and easy going new proprietor promises to more than double the inventory of "organic and gourmet food from around the world."
With a huge cold case of specialty beverages, cheeses and meats to choose from, this is definitely a great stop for your staples when you don’t want to bike all the way to the Whole Foods on the other side of our universe. His background in agriculture should show through in the excellent selection of local organic produce, and he is super excited about his packaged goods as well-very quick to brag about the artisan marshmallows he found! They also have the best coffee in Venice-my own opinion-it’s ground to order from fresh beans roasted weekly at La Mill, and poured through the Cadillac of espresso machines.
