Montesano buys Montecito Deli, opening Oye Vey Maria’s next door

This just in from reader Thorn:

Gene Montesano [owner of Joe’s Cafe, D’Angelo Bread, Tre Lune, Lucky’s] bought the Montecito Deli from Jeff Rypysc. I was told he is opening an Italian/Jewish deli next door.

Montesano’s Instragram page says:

Opening this market adjacent to our Montecito Deli” next to a banner that reads “Oye Vey Maria’s, Jewish Italian Delicatessen, Wise Guys Eat Here, 1150 Coast Village Road, Montecito CA, (805) 969-3717.” He added “It will take us about a month to facilitate all the things we have planned. We kept all the employees so you’ll see the same happy faces you’ve gotten to know over the years.”

    What’s with the gun on here, isn’t their enough imagery of violence in the world. The masses are stupid and interpret things wrong all the time with symbols like this. Put a positive vibe out there like a dancing dreidel or black + white cookie instead.

    nothing wrong with the gun in the logo, considering wise guys eat there. Its a picture of a gun, totally and completely harmless and it goes with the motto. To be honest, I had missed the gun until it was brought up.

    What will the Pastrami be like ? that is the only really important part. Will I have to keep driving to Brent’s in Westlake or Langer’s downtown L.A. or will there finally be decent Pastrami in SB ?
