People are demanding answers after an ABC application went up on the front of the beloved theater most recently home to ArcLight at 9500 Culver Blvd. in Culver City. Here’s what I can find out so far… It appears that Amazon is taking over the historic theater. And there will be food as well. The ABC app lists the name of the new business as LAX75, and the primary owner is listed as multinational foodservice company The Compass Group. There are a lot of rumors swirling around, so if you have more concrete info, please pass it along. (Thanks John!)
Erratum: This story originally reported the new restaurant as French 75. Thanks to all the readers who took the time to let me know.
I heard from a reader (Thanks Andrew!) about a new establishment taking over the old Bondi Harvest space in Culver City at 8820 Washington. In case you haven’t tried recently to navigate your way through the fresh hell that is Downtown Culver City, well… it is an unmitigated traffic disaster and you’ll be stuck there a very long time. Anyway, I did eventually make it to the location to see what was going on. Window paper up on the space announces the impending arrival of Fiish Los Angeles. I can’t seem to find much info on this business so if you know more send me a message. Just know I won’t be driving there anytime soon…
The space at 3849 Main St, in Downtown Culver City, previously the home of Tentenyu Ramen & Sushi Roll, is getting a new tenant. While there’s no sign up yet and the windows are papered over, there is a small now hiring notice attached to the front, spilling the beans that Monty’s Good Burger will soon be spreading their plant-based love to the Good People of CC. Monty’s has a smattering of locations across LA and one in Riverside as well. They offer a focused menu of plant-based burgers, fries, tater tots, drinks, and merch.
The space at 9531 Culver Blvd. has seem many restaurants come and go, including Sambar, AR Cucina, and Ford’s Filling Station. Now another eatery is giving the fickle address a go… There’s a now hiring banner hanging on the front announcing the impending arrival of Arth Kitchen + Bar. It looks like “modern Indian” is on the menu, which you can see here.
More good news Culver City! Sandwiches are heading your way… Window notices are up on a space in the new Culver Steps devlopment at 9300 Culver Blvd. announcing that a branch of popular lunch spot Mendocino Farms is moving in.
Cheer up good people of Culver City! Mint mojito coffee is heading your way! It looks like a branch of popular Bay-Area coffee darling Philz Coffee is moving into one of the spaces in the new The Culver Steps development at 9300 Culver Blvd. in Downtown 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.
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…
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).
