Gjelina Take Away Serves Simple Comfort Food To-Go

New, 11 comments

Elizabeth Daniels 6/11

In case you didn't know that Gjelina Take Away is open, Gjelina Take Away is open. Or GTA, as it's known. The to-go Gjelina spinoff follows the same Gjelina model which is to serve simply prepared seasonal food made from the highest quality ingredients possible, and at GTA there's a concerted focus on making the basics from scratch: breads, pickles, hot sauce, jams, and such.

While the baked goods spread isn't as grand as that of Huckberry, GTA does offer scones, biscuits, cookies, and coffee cakes to start, and one would presume this list will only grow. In the morning, starting at 7AM (closes at 4PM), GTA prepares breakfast sandwiches, then around 11AM transitions into a lunch menu of pizzas (guanciale, margherita, lamb/sausage, bitter greens with bacon), salads/veggies (panzanela with burrata, marinated cauliflower, beets and carrots), and sandwiches (pork meatball, roast turkey, roast beer). Sandwiches are mostly priced in the $9-$14 range, pizzas $10-$15, salads either $4 for a small or $8 for a large. Despite the fact that Intelligentsia is just a few steps away, GTA brews their beans, so there's coffee drinks on offer in addition to Mexican Coke, housemade limeade, and ginger beer. Overall the idea is to start small and grow into itself, so expect later hours, phone/internet ordering, and additional products down the line.
