@HarrietKCRW Evan Kleiman to close Angeli Caffe January 13 :(

January 5, 2012

On January 13, Angeli Caffe on Melrose will serve its last meals before closing forever. Evan Kleiman, chef, restauranteur, best-selling author, and host of “Good Food” on KCRW, shared her passion for Italian cuisine, especially for breads, with hungry Angelinos. “In December of 1984, Evan Kleiman opened Angeli Caffe, a hip Italian restaurant on Melrose Avenue designed to serve simple rustic food in a modern environment.”

It was only in March of 2010 that we were celebrating Angeli’s 25th anniversary. The web is abuzz this morning with news about this sad reality in the life of Los Angeles food culture.

Evan will continue to be featured on KCRW 89.9 FM, sharing her insights and her encounters with chefs and vendors alike at the weekly Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. Very “Good Food” indeed.

Open Table reservations are recommended. The restaurant will be open every night for dinner up until closing except on Monday, January 9.
