I’ve always enjoyed the original Postino at 40th St. and Campbell. They had good wine and pleasant food. It’s good news that the owners have opened Postino Central at 5144 N Central Ave.
However, it’s sad that the old Katz’s Deli at that same location had to close down to make room. Originally opened by David Katz in 1959, it survived until 2008. It was a mainstay for political lunches in town. According to the Jewish News, it was the spot for coffee meetings of the founders of the valley’s first rabbinical council.
Something tells me that the building, at least, will stay on as a place for nosh and “zitzungen.”
The Good: The Bruschetta with brie, apples and fig spread pretty much melts on the tongue.
The Bad: Something about this restaurant’s business model seems to include forcing people to park in residential neighborhoods. I bet if they did a franchise in Beverly Hills, they would inevitably irritate Bradgelina with the all the cars.
The Ugly: Not applicable.
