I’ve been watching the space that used to house the little diner Tulip Cafe at 1314 Colorado Ave. in a desolate industrial part of Santa Monica. It’s been idle for a while, then a notice appeared maybe a year or two ago that an experimental new eatery was moving in. Then that notice disappeared. Now a plucky new restaurant is going to give the quirky location a try. A banner over the door announces that Pure Food will soon inhabit the diminutive space. You can read the menu here, but it looks like falafels are the star of the show, as well as other Mediterranean specialties.
Right? Especially now that a train runs outside the front door. The Tulip Cafe did last a long time, so maybe it’s a captive audience… Tanks for reading!
If there was a train stop outside the front door, it’d be a different story. Plus very little foot traffic. And being vegan/vegetarian in an industrial area. I give it a year tops.
