To the many of you who have been carefully following this story with great excitement comes this happy news: The Brixton will finally throw open its doors this Saturday September 26th at 11:30am. What on earth took so long? You may remember that back in March of 2014 I told you about The Brixton’s impending arrival to the corner space at 2827 Pico Blvd. (corner of Yorkshire) in Santa Monica that used to house The Joker. Apparently the City of Santa Monica had been up to its old shenanigans with an unreasonable amount of demands including a retrofit. But all of that is behind us now. During the soft opening, Chef Joe Sharp has developed a limited menu of 16 items that will eventually be increased. Look for such things as: macaroni and cheese with bacon, crab, scallion and smoked cheese; romesco and goat cheese dip; short rib poutine; mussels in a coconut dill cream sauce ; flatbreads; and flank steak. The focus is on share plates. There are also 10 beers on tap as well as 16 wines on tap. The Brixton will be open 365 days a year from 11:30am until Midnight with a daily happy hour from 3:30pm until 6:30pm. Read more at their Facebook page here.
