Chef Gina Marinelli launched a street-side lunch pop-up from the side door of her Summerlin La Strega restaurant, offering Italian flatbreads known as piadina. She calls the offerings “sandwitches,” a play on the restaurant’s name, which is the Italian word for “witch,” and there are currently five varieties available. Customers can call ahead or place orders at the table from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm Tuesday through Saturday. “I’ve always wanted to do a sandwich shop, and right now it’s perfect on the side,” she said. “You arrive masked, you take your food and you leave. So that’s a way to start it, and it kind of creates more income, by keeping more people employed here.
