Does Anyone Know Why Nicolosi's in Encino is closing?

I'm devastated!

      1. Phooey! I keep hoping for a nice kosher sit-down place in the Valley where I can take a colleague (who keeps kosher) for special occasions.

          Have you noticed Hillel Cafe and Itzik Gadol Grill? They are opening on Ventura Blvd. in Encino. Hillel is between Zelzah and Newcastle and IGG is taking over the former Quincy's BBQ spot. I have no idea when they will open.

        1. I'm devastated as well. I've been away from the valley now for six years. I just went into town last weekend and went straight to "Nicolosi;s" and couldn't believe that it was now a Bach lava Bakery! I will miss the seven layer cookie and my favorite ... Genevasi! (spelling?)

          If anyone knows how to reach Joey Nicolosi, please have him send me the receipt!

            Genovese, and you can get them at Eagle Rock Italian Bakery.

          2. I must be on the "late freight".. I just saw the new storefront today. I'm devestated also. Two of our favorite things from Nicolosi was Sfinge (on St. Joseph Day) and Zuppe Inglese (any other significant occasion). Where now... or do I have to start baking more at home?
