Paninoteca Maggio Launches Temporary Luxe Lonchera
Sharron is not one to sit still.
You're likely reading this for one of two reasons. Either you are a fan of Sharron Barshishat's cuisine, or his restaurant name makes you want to bust a move. Those of the former can cheer a small victory. Despite delays in his new address around the corner from Little Sparrow, Sharron intends to give the people what they want-- LUNCH!
Starting today, Barshishat is launching a panini truck to feed the neighborhood he recently moved into. When I reached out for more intel, he also hinted there would be new menu items. These would ultimately be featured at the brick-and-mortar.
This should not be confused with his other concept brewing (but not quite to fruition), the falafel cart. More on that when he's ready to elaborate further. For now, you can find him on the corner of 3rd and Main Street in downtown Santa Ana from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bring cash, just in case. And follow Paninoteca Maggio on Facebook for additional updates. Oh, and tell Sharron you saw the porchetta.
