Fresh Corn Grill To Leave Santa Monica

On a tip from a reader, I went by to check out what was going on at Santa Monica’s branch of healthy California-cuisine minichain Fresh Corn Grill.  It was over two years ago when I first told you about their arrival to the space at 720 Wilshire, formerly home to a branch of Baja Fresh.  Sadly, this location is ceasing operations after today (Friday 09//23).  It was explained to me that the company is being restructured by the owners.  The other two locations (Westwood, West Hollywood) are to remain open.

Chipotle Disappears From The Golden Triangle

I’ve been hearing from shocked readers that everyone’s favorite grab-and-go burrito joint has abruptly pulled up stakes at 475 N Beverly Dr.  A notice on the front door informs us that Chipotle has unceremoniously quit the space that was previously the longtime home of a Baja Fresh.  Wasting no time, something has already leased the location so I’ll keep watch to see what may be taking over. 

Fresh Corn Grill Confirmed For Santa Monica

I’ve been watching the space that was the home of erstwhile Baja Fresh at 720 Wilshire Blvd. (corner of Lincoln).  The space has been undergoing a remodel for a while now.  An ABC application recently went up on the front confirming that Westwood’s Fresh Corn Grill is on the way.  Expect a menu of healthy pizza, pasta, salad, tacos, and enchiladas.  We wish them the best of luck.



Baja Fresh Now Closed In Manhattan Beach

While there continues to be about a billion branches of Mexican chain Baja Fresh located across the LA area and the country, recently we’ve seen their number decrease somewhat.  The latest casualty appears to be the long-standing outpost located in the Manhattan Village Shopping Center on the corner of Sepulveda and Rosecrans in Manhattan Beach.  Find other locations and read more here.




More Changes To The Century City Shopping Center Food Scene…

It’s been a wild ride over at the Westfield Century City Shopping Center with restaurants coming and going faster than I can keep track.  Here are a few more changes to the food court:  Baja Fresh is now closed with no word of a replacement, and customizable sandwich chain Which Wich is moving into the space to the left of the freshly opened Bibigo.  Check out more about Which Wich here:
