If you follow this blog, you know how competitive the food scene in El Segundo is. Case in point: Once popular Mexican restaurant La Sirena Grill has closed up shop at 710-D Allied Way as the hungry aerospace crowds have moved on to Apollo Landing and The Point. I’ll keep watching to see what develops.
The newest contender for the attention of hungry El Segundo office workers is up and running. Tendergreens had their grand opening on Monday. They are joining an already open Shake Shack, and many other upcoming eateries, in the large Apollo Landing complex at 2181-A Rosecrans Ave.
To all those in El Segundo who have been eagerly awaiting a taste of their wildly popular food comes this welcome news… Shake Shack is now open in the Apollo Landing development at 2171 Rosecrans Ave. Expect a long lines and a whole slough of other openings in this development soon.
Is competition in the food scene getting too stiff in the El Segundo area? New multi-use complexes are popping up right and left. There’s the developing Elevon project, Apollo Landing, and Manhattan Village is getting a much-needed redo. But there are signs that things are wearing thin. Many empty spaces still sit in the newish The Point. And older shopping centers are beginning to bleed tenants. Plaza El Segundo has had a number of vacant storefronts for a while. Recently, customized burger joint The Counter pulled up stakes there. Courageous expanding Indian restaurant chain Samosa House has settled in and is giving it a go, making this their fifth location. We wish them the best of luck.
