What’s Going On At B.H. Poke In Beverly Hills?

Recently, I noticed a hastily written note posted on the front door of fledgling B.H. Poke at 9527 Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills, situated in a block that has seen a great deal of turn over recently.  As you can see, the note states that they are “taking a little break” due to “unforeseen circumstances”.  According to a photo on Yelp, the note has been up since early last month.  It looks like no one has set foot in the shop for quite a while.  I tried to call and inquire, but their phone line no longer works.  So, I can’t confirm if they’re planning on reopening or not, but things don’t look good.



Soom Soom Replaces Couscous A Gogo In Beverly Hills

Well that certainly didn’t take long…  It was only just a couple of weeks ago that I told you about the disappearance of short-lived Couscous A Gogo at 9533 S. Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills.  Wasting no time whatsoever, a branch of LA’s Soom Soom Fresh Mediterranean has taken up residence and is currently in soft opening.  Expect a menu of falafel, shawarma, kebob, and hummus plates.


Couscous A Gogo Gone Gone?

It wasn’t that long age that I first told you about a new North African-influenced restaurant going into the space at 9533 S. Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills.  Lasting a little over a year, it sadly appears that Couscous A Gogo has vacated the location.  The awnings have been pulled down, their phone number no longer works, and the space is being gutted.  This is a tough stretch of Santa Monica Blvd:  puffy meringue people Bo Nuage recently quit their space, and remember Beverly Hills Beignet?  I’ll keep watching to see what develops.


Couscous A Gogo Now Open In BH

Many of you have been fascinated with the progress of the fast fresh build-you-own couscous concept that was under construction at 9533 S. Santa Monica Blvd. (formerly Frankie & Johnnie’s).  You’ll be happy to hear that Couscous A Gogo is now open in Beverly Hills.  Read more and find a copy of their menu here.





Couscous A Gogo Set To Bring Mediterranean To The Golden Triangle

In other Beverly Hills news, I recently noticed a sign taped to the front window of the space at 9533 S. Santa Monica Blvd. that used to house Frankie & Johnnie’s Pizza indicating a new eatery is on the way.  According to the sign, we can soon expect Mediterranean food from a cleverly named Couscous A Gogo.  Not much information out there, just a Facebook page that you can check out here.
