Soom Soom Fresh Mediterranean Expands Into Brentwood

With locations in Beverly Hills and LA, it looks like purveyors of healthy, organic Mediterranean food Soom Soom are living up to their website’s promise to expand “across Los Angeles and beyond”.  Paper is covering the window at 11704 South Barrington Court announcing their impending arrival.  I’m not sure how far along their progress is, but I’ll keep watching.

What’s Going On At Moo Greek Yogurt In Brentwood?

Moo Greek Yogurt burst onto the scene back in July of 2016, riding a popular yogurt mini-wave.  Things seem to have slowed a bit, and Moo has been closed down for a while in their location at 11753 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood.  Since then, I’ve been watching to see what develops.  Their Yelp page promises a return in 2018, and their website doesn’t offer many clues, but the place is essentially gutted.  I’ll keep my eye on things, but it doesn’t look good…

L’Ami Closed In Santa Monica

It wasn’t that long ago that The Little Door Santa Monica turned into L’Ami in their sunny location at 246 26th St. in Santa Monica.  Well, I don’t know what happened, or exactly when it happened, but I recently noticed that they have pulled up stakes entirely.  The website says that they are closed for renovations, but that is all too frequently code for “permanently closed”, which is precisely what Opentable says.  I’ll keep watching to see what develops.

Blue Bottle Comes To Brentwood

I’ve been watching the diminutive space at 13050 San Vicente Blvd. suite 108 (corner of 26th) in Brentwood ever since Starbucks closed up shop there earlier in the year.  Signs recently went up on the façade informing us that expanding über-hip roasters  Blue Bottle Coffee will soon be inhabiting the address.  And sooner than you think:  According to their website, they’ll be handing out free coffee this Saturday for their pre-opening sneak peak “community day” starting at 9am.

Joe & The Juice Expands Into Brentwood

International lifestyle brand Joe & The Juice continues its inexorable conquest of the hip juice scene in LA.  First came news back in April that a location was landing on Melrose.  Then I noticed window paper in Beverly Hills.  And recently, yet more window paper has popped up on the corner spot of San Vicente and Montana in Brentwood, right next to Alfred Coffee at 11906 San Vicente Blvd., announcing the Danish company’s impending arrival.  When will the “hunky guys” start pouring?  We’ll have to watch and see…Joe&TheJuice.jpg

The Market At M Café Brentwood Gives Up The Ghost…

Sadly, “contemporary macrobiotic” food source The Market at M Café has quietly closed down its location at 11678 San Vicente Blvd. in competitive Brentwood.  But all is not lost:  The notice on the door lets us know that they have a new location at 1800 Highland in addition to their other two locations and are looking to expand further.  I’ll keep my eye on the space to see what develops…
