Gjelina: our love affair with Burrata…

Everyone from local artists to Gweneth Paltrow come to eat at L.A.’s Gjelina.



1429 Abbot Kinney

Venice, CA 90291

Neighborhood: Venice

(310) 450-1429


Here’s a look at what Whitney, Alex and I found inside:

The decor is rustic chic, with the spirit of Edison (his bulbs are everywhere) and the food is addictive and market fresh..

 You have to try one of their famous thin crust pizzas…Whitney and I shared our absolute favorite: Mixed Mushroom, Rosemary, olive oil and garlic. mmmm..drooling over here:)

For starters I chose the Proscuitto, Pear and Burrata salad.. drizzled in basalmic dressing. Literally melted in my mouth! Obsessed with anything with Burrata:)

Be sure to plan ahead and make a RES in advance if you want to come in for dinner…any parties  with 10 or more, you should book the swanky back room:

And even though Alex wanted those bottles of wine above him, we brought our own and saved $$$ !


Honey Tip! Best time to go: Early afternoon, you can sit just about anywhere before the hype comes dripping in..

 ** Only negative: I have been in here at least 10 times and the waiters are just as snooty as some of the people living in the lofts behind them.

On the other hand, the owner is definitely not..

Owner,Fran Camaj is definitely HONEY APPROVED:)


 ..Want more? Stalk me this week for Whit and Alex’s trip to the canals:)
