Gjelina

*pausing the Paris posts*

Gjelina
1429 Abbot Kinney Boulevard
Venice CA 90291


I've had some great luck with food lately.
Tevaundra and I (along with Sarah) had been planning on coming here for months now, but life always got in the way.
Sarah missed out.....T, Lo and I had a great time.
This place is definitely going to be my go to spot in Venice
They only take reservations if you have a party of 6
We rolled in at 2pm and waited 20 minutes to be seated...not too bad
Brunch is served until 3pm

roasted bartlet pear, burrata, grilled chicories, crisp bacon & bacon vinaigrette


toasts that came with the cheeses
