No cod at Solley's!!

Debbie W. | Nov 5, 200407:43 PM

Just back from a week of fabulous eating in Oaxaca, Mexico, too lazy to grocery shop, wanting to stay in the neighborhood and seeking pretty much anything as long as it was tortilla-free, my husband and I went to Solley's in Sherman Oaks last night specifically for their "smoked fish brunch" which we have enjoyed many times in the past at various brunch-appropriate and non-brunch-appropriate hours of day and night. Lox, bbq cod, whitefish, potato salad, coleslaw, olives, bagels and cream cheese. We're not big fans of whitefish but are big fans of cod, so we always got double cod instead of the whitefish component. What a disappointment and irritation to discover that Solley's no longer carries cod. What kind of freakin' deli doesn't have cod? I know, I know, Solley's is owned by Jerry's and that should speak for itself, and yeah I realize that Solley's is not all that popular on this board. But it's the closest deli to our house, like 5 minutes away, and we like it ok for some things. It takes at least 1/2 hour to drive to Brent's and that was not on the agenda, and I don't care for Art's which is reasonably close (and I'm really not wanting to start a deli debate here, I'm just needing to rant). This "we don't have cod anymore" got me so flustered that I literally couldn't think of another thing on their humongous menu that I would want to order, so we got up and left without ordering anything.
