It looks like El Segundo’s The Point shopping center, on the corner of Rosecrans and Pacific Coast Highway, is about to get a new eatery. I told you about the closure of buzzy Umi by Hamasaku back in October of last year. Window covering is letting us know that this location will be the future home of expanding Greek/Mediterranean restaurant chain CAVA.
What was once a very quiet section of Downtown Santa Monica is quickly transforming into a restaurant destination. Just to the right of Cava and the upcoming HiHo, at 1320 2nd St. Suite A, a brand new handmade pasta joint calling itself Uovo Pasta will soon be joining the list. And it looks like they’re fairly close to opening…
It wasn’t that long ago that I told you about a branch of the rapidly expanding build-your-own Mediterranean restaurant Cava Grill was going to land in Downtown Santa Monica. Now they’re ready to open. And to celebrate, they’re giving away free lunches this Tuesday (5/23) from 12pm to 2pm at their new 1318 2nd Street location. Thank you Cava Grill!
This food scene on this formerly bleak little stretch of Lincoln is really taking off… Paper is up in the window of the space at 324 Lincoln Blvd.in Venice announcing that sweet and savory pastry specialist The Pie Hole is digging in, right next to the recently opened Cava Grill. Looks like they’re shooting for a Spring opening.
DC’s Greek/Mediterranean restaurant chain Cava Grill continues to expand. After opening their Westwood location only a couple of months ago, they are adding another location in Downtown Santa Monica. Paper is covering the windows of the recently constructed building housing the Chelsea apartment complex at 1320 2nd Street announcing the impending arrival. If you check out their website, you’ll see that they are also opening soon in Venice, Culver City, and Irvine.
Back in April of last year, Eater told us about the expansion of DC’s Cava Grill into LA. Well, one branch of the build-as-you-go Greek/Mediterranean restaurant has already opened in The Village at Topanga. But now we know where the second location will be… Westwood (1073 Broxton to be exact). No word on an opening date, but construction is fast and furious.
