Sepi’s Expands In Westwood

I recently noticed that the retail space at 1009 Broxton Ave., that formerly housed women’s clothing boutique Kinsley, is being outfitted to accommodate a new restaurant.  An ABC application posted in the window doesn’t indicate a business name, but the applicant is listed as Dunedin Company LLC.  A quick search online reveals that Dunedin is the parent company of Westwood’s longtime submarine shop Sepi’s.  Since there is no business name offered, this new eatery may be a divergence from suds and subs, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see…

What’s Going On At Big Catch Seafood House, Brentwood?

Brentwood’s branch of Big Catch Seafood House at 12009 Wilshire Blvd. appears to have gone off the deep end.  They place appears gutted.  There are still a few tables outside, otherwise the space is mostly empty.  Yelp is not reporting it as closed yet, and the last review on was on April 16th, but the phone has been disconnected, there is no mention of this location on the company website, and when I went by last night after their usual opening hours to check things out, they were closed.  I can’t report with any certainty that they are finished (or possibly restructuring), but things don’t look good…  Let me know if anyone has more information.

Sensible Seasonal Healthy Food Takes Over Fresh Healthy Café In Santa Monica Place

The food scene in Santa Monica Place is as mercurial as ever…  A banner affixed over the top of the old sign informs us that Fresh Healthy Café has transformed into Sensible Seasonal Healthy Food.  Expect a similar menu of smoothies, bowls, salads, panini, and wraps at the free-standing food court lunch counter.

Carvery Kitchen Quits Santa Monica, Lands In LA

Recently, I discovered that popular sandwich spot Carvery Kitchen had vacated its space at 3101 Ocean Park Blvd. in Santa Monica.  The space is completely gutted and all signs have been removed.  But all is not lost… According to their website, Carvery Kitchen is moving to 8832 Pico Blvd. in LA, previously the home of Mexikosher.  I went by to check out their progress. The plucky “Ultimate Deli” had planned on a soft opening April 16th, but they appear to be behind schedule and have a way to go.

Kreation Organic Coming To Brentwood… With Beer And Wine!

Just a few weeks ago, I told you about the collective gasp from locals when Gaucho Grill quit its location at 11754 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood.  Wasting no time whatsoever, an ABC application taped to the front of the space indicates that Kreation Organic is moving in.  Known for their “pressed juices” and “kleanses”, you probably wouldn’t automatically associate Kreation Organic with beer and wine.  I’ll keep my eye on this one…
