“7th Street Bistro” Coming Soon To Santa Monica

Looks like things are rolling right along on the joint effort by Brant Ng (The Spice Table) and Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan (Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry, Milo & Olive) going into the impressive and enormous deco Verizon building at 1314 7th St. in Santa Monica.  The space will apparently become two different projects.  One will be a café and retail space seating 49 indoor and 37 outdoor  and the other a restaurant seating 242 indoor and 72 outdoor according to The Santa Monica Daily Press.  The names listed on the ABC licenses are 7th Street Bistro and 7th Street Wine, but I’m told these are simply working names for the lease and may not be what they’re called in the end.  They are shooting for a Summer 2014 opening.
