It looks like Massimos has been bought out by Rainbow Acres, the health food store. Massimos kitchen and a small store front off the alley next to Washington Blvd & Redwood Ave. have been one of the only places to get their gelato & baked goods ever since they closed their location on Abbot Kinney and their relationship with the Venice Trading Company on Pacific Ave. in Venice seemed to just end. Now it looks like they're taking over a more prominent storefront on Washington between the Vans store and Rainbow Acres.
I had heard that Massimo had possibly sold his recipes, but I'm pretty surprised that it was to Rainbow Acres. I guess this goes along with Rainbow Acres recent expansion.
I really liked Massimos food and he and his wife were always very nice. I wish them luck with whatever they're up to now.
