Papa’s Place is having their official “Grand Opening” tomorrow, Saturday, August 28, 2010. Doors will open to the public from 12 noon to 6pm, then a private staff meeting on Sunday, and regular working hours again on Monday (11am-9pm). The owner, Cengiz Karachua, has dedicated the unique Turkish-German Deli Style restaurant to his father, who served the Los Feliz community as the Golden Needle Tailoring for 23 years prior. His father had always wished for his son to open a restaurant and about two years after his passing, his dreams will be realized. An official menu had not yet been finalized, but the manager stated the Turkish – German take out style establishment will be unique. Sauerkraut and sausages…Mediterranean sandwiches…burgers..and a bakery!

Covell is focusing on quality and intimacy; serving boutique wines and craft beer (and bottles “to go”). The idea is to support local West Coast breweries and small production wines. Wines will run about 5$-12$ a glass. The rotating wine selection will include “anything and everything, whatever we like,” Kaner says. “I’ve been doing this too long to discriminate; there’s great wine coming from everywhere.”

And best of all, Unimenu is completely free.
