    Mamie Kitchen Offering Street Food of Italy is Now Open in West Hollywood

    Mamie Kitchen, specializing in the street food of Italy, is now open on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue at 7900 Santa Monica Blvd. The new eatery had a soft opening late January and is gearing up for a grand opening later this month.

    Owner Mikael tells WEHO TIMES he is currently relying on word of mouth and hasn’t launched a website or promoted his business via social media. He said the word is out, and he’s happy to be serving the local community, which ranges from all walks of life and various age groups.

    Mamie specializes in pizza, sandwiches, salads, and pastries. Items are baked fresh because the establishment has its own baker station where they bake their own breads and pizza dishes.

    “We have our own in-house bakery,” he said. “We have our bakers come in, and we make our own dough that we use for our pizzas and ciabatta sandwiches. We serve Roman pizza every day. So we make everything here. We make make all our own toppings, we purchase all the meat from small producers and it’s all Italian goods.”

    Mikael says he has been a resident of West Hollywood for 30 years, so he is familiar with the neighborhood. Is son Leo is currently enrolled in West Hollywood elementary. He says he appreciates the support of the community and is impressed that local residents have found their way into his restaurant, either because they were walking, by or they heard from a friend that they were open for business.

    Although he loves being on the corner of a busy intersection, he said some of the challenges he anticipates are the lack of parking in that area, the homeless issues, mainly those suffering from mental health issues due to drug use, and he also says that it can be loud on the corner.

    Mamie Kitchen is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The menu is currently limited due to its soft opening. To learn more, give them a call at (323) 848-4894.

    True the name is a derogatory in the African American history ” it’s like calling a restaurant ” WOP ” or Guinea or Hymie town or Beaner or slant eyes ” all these terms are discussing and they would offend ” Italians Jewish people Mexican people and Chinese/ Asian ” he dropped the ball on the name ” Big Time no matter how good the food is ” the name is a deal killer…

    Oh God. Do your research before you come on here creating dumb drama and trying to cancel a business before it even gets started. Mammy, which is the derogatory term you’re referring to has nothing to do with Mamie, which is an Italian term of endearment for grandma. It’s an Italian restaurant.

    “he is currently relying on word of mouth and hasn’t launched a website or promoted his business via social media.”

    I’m shocked any restaurant owner could think this is smart in 2024. I hope he has some younger people on his team. Not a wise choice at all.

    You could have the best food in the world, but there needs to be promotion and outreach.

    Let’s hope this is his “soft opening,” and he does some marketing once all the kinks are worked out.

    Have been in twice already – the food is delicious, but a little overpriced (although what isn’t in Weho now?). Very friendly staff and a welcome addition to the neighborhood IMHO.

    Could be, although they are pretty big sandwiches. I noticed the sandwiches are comparably priced to the very similar Lorenzo in Beverly Hills and a few bucks more than recently opened All’Antico Viniao in Venice.

    Well, will these places ever learn? Westhollywood is a nighttime city they need to be open at least until midnight… Even though it’s not a bar people get home from work and they want to eat they want to get out of there places and socialize and have coffee and a bite to eat with friends or even by themselves, closing at 6 PM when all the residents are getting home from work makes the place looks like it’s out of business.. This is is the third business on that corner the last five years… now, I wonder what the… Read more »

    Lol. Why did he choose this location if he knew of the challenges? Nothing has been able to stay open long in this space. With the long buildout hes had and overhead costs i give it less than 6 months.
