7. The "G" is silent
As in Gjelina, Gjelina Take Away, and Gjusta -- the restaurants we all basically live at. Only in Venice do the consonants "G" and "J" go together. And man, we are so happy they do.
8. And speaking of, no, we can't get a reservation either
The local thing doesn’t work at Gjelina, so don't even ask.
9. Ask for skim milk, and prepare for a lecture on GMOs
Ask for it at any restaurant or coffee shop on Abbot Kinney, and 1) the staff doesn't have it, and 2) they're prepared with lots of hormone-related facts as to why they don’t. They will, however, happily serve you their $4.50 homemade almond milk. Yum?
