INCOMING: Salt & Cleaver

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.
