Gjelina

Venice
California Cuisine

For a midday shopping break or fun night out on Venice’s Abbot Kinney Boulevard, you can do no better than this rustic, sexy spot, with a glorious courtyard and deliriously good food. Dishes are made for sharing, with standouts including wood-roasted cauliflower with garlic, chili, and vinegar; grilled merguez sausage with chimichurri and charred red onion; and any of their signature flat-bread pizzas. In a rush? Stop by Gjelina’s take away spot next door, or head a few streets down to Gjusta, chef-owner Travis Lett’s buzzy new sister bakery, deli, and café.
