Il Tramezzino - a place I first went to in Beverly Hills is now opening in Tarzana. The photos above were taken at the location in Sherman Oaks on Ventura Boulevard just west of Coldwater Canyon.
"Il Tram," as everyone calls it, is well known for its light and quick bites and also as a place to see and be seen. For some reason unclear to me, this place is very IN at the moment. I remember going there late one night and enjoying a hot croissant filled with Nutella and sliced Bananas.
Here in LA, or at least the "Valley", its very cool to sit outside, under the beautiful rays of the sun. Most places that offer some sort of outdoor seating arrangement succeed.
As for the Tarzana location, I can't tell if anything is being done over there. The new place has had a sign "Il Tramezzino Opening Soon" for some months now and from the crack in the plywood construction doors, it doesn't seem like its gonna be anytime soon. Rumor has it that a Whole Foods supermarket will be opening across the street so maybe they're waiting for that traffic to come in before opening up, but that wont be for at least 12-18 months.
