This past weekend we went to a great restaurant in Venice with some friends.  I’ve actually been here a couple of times and our friends had also been here, but my husband had never.  It was exciting to share this place with him.

Gjelina is really a hot spot on the infamous Abbott Kinney Blvd.  The crowd ranges from young to older…all looking like hipsters of course.  The place is LOUD, but has a good vibe.  and the food makes up for noise.  Seating seems to be plentiful,  a few communal tables included, however there always seems to be a wait.  unless you have a reservation.
The decor is simple.urban.rustic.   On this occassion we were seated in the back of the restaurant which was great because we could actually talk without screaming to be heard. yay.

It was a great evening.  We loved hanging out with our friends…they’re such a fun couple. The food was wonderful.  I think everything we ordered was on point.  Everyone’s favorite…the mushroom toast.  If you’re ever in the area, it’s a place that may be worth a try.  If you’re not in the area, please let me share our meal with you.
