Fritto Misto Taking Over Native Space In Santa Monica…

I can’t take credit for this uncovering this, but people have been curious about the old Native space on the corner of 7th and Santa Monica Blvd. in Downtown Santa Monica ever since celebrity chef Nyesha Arrington pulled the plug, so I’m passing this information on…  Just this week, the Santa Monica Daily Press reported that longtime neighborhood fave pasta joint Fritto Misto will be moving into the aforementioned erstwhile Native location.  Apparently, their old cozy corner spot at 601 Colorado will be demolished to make way for a new eight story apartment building.  That means that their neighbor, sushi restaurant Ninjin, will also be moving out.  If you don’t know about Fritto Misto, it is an under-the-radar Italian cafe with a fiercely loyal fanbase and a second location in Hermosa Beach.  We wish them the best of luck.FrittoMisto.jpg

  1. Fritto Misto, which serves pasta with “Cajun” chicken, is “Italian”, not Italian. The real deal for pasta in Santa Monica is Colapasta on 5th St near Arizona.
