About

Gjelina opened on Venice’s Abbot Kinney Boulevard in 2008, serving locally-sourced, produce-forward food and becoming a staple in the community. Across our family of restaurants, our menus are guided by conversations and long-standing relationships with farmers, local ranchers, fishermen, and co-ops.

Our second Gjelina location — and our first in New York City — opens fall 2022 at 45 Bond Street.

THE GJELINA GROUP

Built on the foundation of a family, Gjelina Group creates hospitality experiences delivered from a place of purpose, with simplicity. Named for founder Fran Camaj’s mother, Gjelina opened on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in 2008, serving locally-sourced, produce-forward food and becoming a staple in the Venice community.

Since then, our businesses have evolved with our neighborhood — with our menus guided by conversations and long-standing relationships with Southern California farmers, local ranchers, fishermen, and co-ops.

We now own and operate our restaurant Gjelina, Gjusta (our deli-bakery-cafe), GTA (our take away spot), Gjusta Goods (our retail store), Gjusta Grocer (our market and grocery), Gjusta Flower Shop, and Gjusta Apartment. Alongside we operate our nonprofit Gjelina Foundation and Gjusta Studios, our evolving spaces for interdisciplinary creative residencies.

The Gjelina Group Foundation

The Gjelina Group Foundation is a 501c3 registered nonprofit dedicated to uplifting communities through the support of programs committed to food, farming, arts, and environmental sustainability.
