Paninoteca Maggio to Reopen Tuesday After Closure, Eyeing Second Location

Paninoteca Maggio, everyone's new favorite SanTana sandwich shop, will reopen Tuesday after a brief closure that lasted about a week.

My initial hope was that they'd somehow add more seating to the shoe-box-sized cafe, but chef Sharron Barshishat said it was for plumbing upgrades. Come 10 a.m. Tuesday it won't matter much anyway--you'll be able to grab delicious porchetta and meatballs, and what Dave says is the "best espresso in Orange County" once again.

For a week we were without a Paninoteca Maggio, but in his response to me, Sharron said he's searching for a second location, possibly somewhere Downtown. Huzzah!

 @googleismyfriend Research? You mean like us exposing the OC HCA for letting an E. Coli-stricken restaurant off the hook? Methinks you doth protest too much and are probably a competitor...

Not a competitor.

 

Just like you, and I, believe the public deserves to know the name of the E.Coli-stricken restaurant, I believe the public deserves to know that Paninoteca Maggio was operating outside of their health permit limitations and thereby creating a potential public health issue.  

 

And the amount of research you did or didn't do on the E.Coli case has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of research you did or didn't do in this case.

 

 I stand by my assessment that in this case research was lacking.

 @googleismyfriend See, here's where we differ; I don't consider anything that the OC HCA dinged the place for a "potential public health issue"—more micromanaging bullshit by an agency that plays favorites. Not newsworthy in my opinion.
