Bid on a $100 gift card to redeem at Gjusta in Venice
Located in a sprawling, warehouselike space in Venice, just minutes away from Abbot Kinney Blvd, Gjusta offers special breads baked on-site.
Is it a bakery? Kind of. The charred, crunchy baguettes, sourdough loaves and whole-grain boules dominate the north end of the enormous counter, along with the tarts, flatbreads, quiches and butter-saturated croissants.
Is it a deli? Also yes: A few yards farther down in the glass case are house-cured pastramis, pickles and hams, along with an extensive array of the smoked fish and condiments that people in New York call "appetizing'' - food meant to be eaten with bagels and bialys.
A bakery, a deli, a local hang-out.
