Recently opened Abbot Kinney restaurant specializing in farmer’s market fresh American contemporary cuisine. Still hammering out the service kinks but a delicious addition to the neighborhood. Their vegetable dishes are especially fine. Gjelina serves beer and wine. Best make a reservation — Gjelina’s “in” this summer.
