Recently I noticed a small pending development permit taped to the front of the building that used to house eclectic design bookshop Hennessey + Ingalls at 214 Wilshire Blvd in Downtown Santa Monica. If you look carefully at the notice, you can see that the space is being redesigned to change use from a retail space into a full service restaurant. And what will be the name of the new eatery, that will be sandwiched between Hillstone and California Pizza Kitchen? The permit lists the applicant as Santa Monica Farmhouse. There doesn’t seem to be a great deal of information out there yet, just some details of the trademark, but I’ll keep watching.
