Bok Bok Chicken Landing In Culver City Soon

It looks like popular Las Vegas Mediterranean chain Bok Bok Chicken is expanding its presence in LA.  Back in June, they opened a location in Downtown LA.  And now, a banner affixed to the front of a space in the Culver Crossroads shopping center on the corner of Washington and Sepulveda is announcing the expansion.  Look for a menu of panini, pitas, and plates of shawerma, falafel, rotisserie chicken, with other Mediterranean specialties.

Signature Burger Signs Off In Culver City

The Culver City mercurial food scene continues its rocky ride…  There’s a big for lease sign in the window of what used to be Signature Burger at 3835 Main St. in Downtown Culver City.  Could it be due to the new Burgerim about to open just a few doors down?   I’ll keep watching to see what may take its place.

Piccalilli Coming Soon To Culver City

Something is coming to the corner location at 3850 Main St. #A in Downtown Culver City.  An ABC application lists the business name as Wild Child, which also happens to be the name of a kid’s gym nearby.  But right next to the application, a small sign promises us that Piccalilli is soon to inhabit the space.  It’s not uncommon for an ABC application to list a prototype name (or no name) and then later change the name to something else, so I’m betting on Piccalilli.  I can’t find out much information on the new “general eating place”, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see…

Latea Bringing Bubble Tea To Culver City

With locations in Illinois and Indiana, a new “bubble tea lounge” is heading to Downtown Culver City.  Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt ditched its conspicuous corner location at 3851 Main St. last year.  Now a small notice is announcing that beverage and snack expert Latea is intent on moving in.  Look for a wide menu of organic milk tea, tea drinks, specialty drinks, and snacks (seasoned fries).

Café Parisien Says Salut! To Brentwood

Thanks to a tip from a reader, I went to check out what was going on at the former La Scala space at 11740 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood, after La Scala’s recent relocation to Wilshire Blvd.  Sure enough, a new ABC application is posted on the front.  While no business name is listed, the applicant tracks to a location in Culver City, which happens to be French charmer Meet In Paris.  So I called Meet In Paris and spoke to a source who told  me that the Brentwood space will soon be the home of a second branch of Larchmont Village’s Café Parisien, sister restaurant to Meet In Paris.  I’m told that the menu will be similar to the Meet In Paris menu, but with a stronger emphasis on dinner, like Café Parisien.  They’re shooting for an end of May opening, “fingers crossed”.  We wish them the best of luck…

Menotti’s Coffee Stop Landing On Washington In LA

Poplar hip Venice caffeine joint Menotti’s Coffee Stop is continuing to expand.  Recently they appeared on Sunset in Hollywood.  Now, according to the new signs, it looks like that they are opening another location in an old hardware store at 12450 W Washington Blvd. in Los Angeles (Or is it Culver City?  It’s confusingly written both ways on-line.)  I’m not sure when the flat whites and cortados will start pouring, but it looks like they’re not too far off…
