grandview market in alhambra (home of the "italian treat!")

rameniac | Jun 30, 2006 06:58 AM

growing up in the shadow of phil spector's future castle, grandview market in alhambra (on valley near fremont) was the go-to-place for the "italian treat" - as good a hoagie as you're likely to find in town. eventually the shop was sold to an asian couple but they kept the tradition alive (ok so they skimped on the meat a little but who cares). i was super disappointed to return a couple of days ago and find that grandview market is now a lawnmower shop. the lawnmower guy said they'd been there since november, and that the market is long gone but he has no idea what happened to them. does anyone out there know? i know it was there as recently as a year ago, but have they have they reopened somewhere else? is the "italian treat" alive and well and edible, or does it now exist solely in tape form on the shelf of a seedy video store? inquiring hounds want to know!
