Belly Up Sandwich Shop Replacing Glencrest BBQ

Belly Up

Following the farewell party at Venice's 24-year-old Glencrest Barbecue this week, a new tenant is already set to take over the space. Belly Up Sandwich Shop is now showing signage at 1146 Abbot Kinney, promising barbecued pork belly and chopped brisket sandwiches, fried pickles, and other Southern-twanged specialties. So basically, another, bouzier barbecue spot that can afford the rent is commandeering the address. Update: owner Jon Swire writes in to say he's looking towards an April opening date. [Earlier]
