Tatel LA Taking Over Nic’s Beverly Hills

As you probably already know, legendary watering hole Nic’s Beverly Hills closed after a long run on Jan 31st.  And what will be taking over its space at 453 N. Canon Dr?  An ABC application appeared in the window this week announcing that something called Tatel LA will soon be moving in.  Could this be a branch of the highly anticipated Spanish restaurant coming soon to Miami?  We’ll have to wait and see…

A New Organic Plant Based Deli & Juice Bar Is Coming To Venice


I don’t have much information on this… A notice is up on the small neighborhood market that used to be the location of Sal’s Deli at 2524 Pacific Ave. in Venice declaring that the space will soon house an “organic plant based deli” and “organic juice bar”.  The telephone number on the banner connects to something  called “Gold Coast Properties”.  As always, I’ll keep watching.

Merci Clement Coming Soon To BH

Paper covering the windows at 9887 S. Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills informs us that we can expect a new French café, Merci Clement to open soon.  Not much out there yet, just an undeveloped website and Facebook page.  According to the notices on the door, we can look for a menu of specialty coffee, salads, sandwiches, crepes, chocolates, “petit cakes”, and gelato.  It looks like they’re planning on opening some time this year…

Go Greek Yogurteria Now Open In Santa Monica

About a year ago, I told you about the expansion of a decadently rich yogurt shop to the tony space at 1431 Ocean Ave. (in the Pacific Plaza building) in Santa Monica.  It took a while, but Go Greek Yogurteria recently opened and is dishing dairy to the good people of Santa Monica.  Read more about their fresh yogurt bar and self-serve frozen yogurt here.

Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern Now Open In Santa Monica

Almost exactly one year ago, I told you about an ABC license posting on the old La Cachette Bistro space at 1733 Ocean Ave. in Santa Monica announcing that a branch of popular West Coast watering hole Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern would soon inhabit the address.  It took a while, but they are now up and serving lunch, dinner, and brunch.  Check out their menu of “artisanal regional American classics” here.
