Bluestone Lane Bringing Flat Whites To Beverly Hills Soon

South Santa Monica Blvd. in The Golden Triangle can be a tricky location.  Eateries come and go along the notoriously capricious strip.  But that doesn’t seem to deter plucky newcomers.  Recently I told you about The Kind Ones, and right next door, in what used to be Bo Nuage at 9523 S. Santa Monica, signs have recently gone up announcing a branch of expanding Australian coffee chain Bluestone Lane.

Fatamorgana Gelato Appearing In Beverly Hills Soon

It appears that Beverly Hills is about to get a whole lot sweeter soon…  Window displays are up announcing confirmation that the much-anticipated Fatamorgana Gelato will soon be arriving to the space at 162 S Beverly Dr. in Beverly Hills.  The celebrity fave Italian brand has one shop in Studio City and boasts 66 hand-made flavors, 26 of which are vegan, and everything is gluten-free.  I’m told they’re shooting for a March opening.

Jimmy John’s Expands Into Culver City

I’ve been watching the new construction on the northeast corner of Washington and Overland in Culver City to see what may develop.  After a new Starbucks, it appears that a branch of sandwich chain Jimmy John’s is intent on moving in.  There are still a lot of spaces left on the ground floor, so I’ll keep watching to see what else may land there.
