INCOMING: Salt & Cleaver
Fearing the wrath of Ferris Bueller, Abe Froman's changes name. Still brings the sausage.

Abe Froman’s is still bringing sausage to Hillcrest. The 5th Ave spot will focus on gourmet sausage and craft beer behind chef Carlos Sanmartano, but they’re going through a few pre-open makeovers. Most notably, the name. Abe Froman’s will change their name to Salt & Cleaver after a snafu. Mama didn't raise no rocket scientists, but we're guessing it has something to do with the fact that Froman was a cult-loved figure in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and that Paramount has more lawyers than Octomom's got babies. They've also moved the storefront back several feet and will include a small patio; they’re planning on opening doors in a month. They recently did a segment with KUSI News outlining a few of their sausages and side dishes. Two not-so-sausage highlights: the faceless vegetarian sausage with quinoa, cauliflower, eggplant and peppers rolled in a cauliflower leaf topped with fennel slaw, and a quinoa, red pepper and sausage salad. “Sausage doesn’t always have to hit you in the face,” says Sanmartano.
