Gjelina's new project, Gjusta, led by Pastry Chef Nicole Mournian, expects to open this month.

Gjusta, the anticipated bakery from Venice's popular Gjelina, is near completion, with an opening slated for October 13. Located near Abbot Kinney on Sunset Avenue, everything seems to be moving along at the moment.
