Seasoning Alley! Major Yum!!!
Some restaurants open with great fanfare hiring marketing firms and publicists. Others open quietly letting the food speak for itself. Seasoning Alley’s Mediterranean cuisine does just that. The food is absolutely delicious and, once you try it, you will go back. Everything at the Alley is fresh; nothing is frozen. The No. 1 seller is succulent beef tri tip shawarma, layers of beef that are slow roasted on a revolving spit and shaved off, crusty edges and all, to serve along with pita, basmati rice, roasted tomato and garden salad. You must go! It’s at 2232 Honolulu Ave. where Al’s Deli used to be. The space has been completely redone with warm colors and happy umbrellas. Psst…try the beet salad!
Dan Bell, Community Relations coordinator for the City of Glendale, has put together a fun to watch and informative video of what the Montrose Shopping Park has to offer. In it, he interviews Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce’s Melinda Clark and MSPA’s Dale Dawson as scenes of the town and our family-style events flash on the screen. If you love Montrose and want to share it with your friends, it can be seen on Channel 6, You Tube, the MSP Facebook page, and www.shopmontrose.com.
We are looking forward to a beautiful day as the MVCCC brings us Montrose Art Walk 2014 this Saturday. It’s a great time to enjoy local artists and musicians as you shop and dine our tree-lined streets.
Thank you for reading this column and shopping our one-of-a-kind shops, salons and cafes. There is always something new to discover in Montrose! Get ready for the 31st Annual Arts & Crafts Festival coming up May 31 and June 1. This one is going to be the biggest and best yet! See you next week!
