Voltaggio STRFSH Now Open In Santa Monica

Ever since I first told you about the new project from the Voltaggio Brothers, that was coming to The Gallery at 1315 3rd Street Promenade, a great many of you have been anxiously checking for details.  (Eater filled in the gaps.)   Well… cue the stampede:  Voltaggio STRFSH is now open as of two days ago.  Currently, they are only open for lunch, but they plan on dinner service soon. The concept?  You start with a choice of swordfish or salmon.  Then choose a rub, a smear, and toppings before it all lands on a toasted potato roll.  Or pick one of their already designed sandwiches.  An ABC license is posted, so libations are on the way.  You’re welcome.

Fresh Bowls Arriving On Main St. In SM…

The windows on the space at 2715 Main St. in Santa Monica, formerly the home of the erstwhile lobster specialists Knuckle & Claw, is preparing to have a new tenant.  A small notice taped to the front door references something called Fresh Bowls.  An online search reveals that there are a number of unrelated restaurants across the US and a small chain in Canada utilizing that name, so I don’t have any conclusive evidence as to what exactly will be moving in, or even if that will be the name of the new restaurant.  As always, I’ll keep watching…

Pho Hue Oi Vietnamese Kitchen Expands Into Redondo Beach

Vietnamese food seems to be expanding its presence in this neck of the woods…  An extensive remodel of the space at 4501 Inglewood Ave. #101 in Redondo Beach is making way for a branch of Pho Hue Oi Vietnamese Kitchen.  With one extensively lauded restaurant in Fountain Valley, this is their first foray into LA county.  Look for a menu of authentic Hue dishes as well as other popular favorites such as pho.
