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!
