It appears that Santa Monica is getting its very own branch of a popular high-end “gourmet neighborhood market”. There’s a notice in the papered-over windows of the former home of Earthbar at 1426 Montana Ave. letting us all know that this will be the future home of a branch of Los Feliz’s much-lauded McCall’s Meat & Fish Co. McCall’s prides itself on delivering the “highest quality meats, fish, produce, pastries” all while “keeping in mind the health and nature of the animals”. Interesting…
While I’m not quite sure when it happened, it appears that something has moved into the former home of Beaming at 1426 Montana Ave. in Santa Monica. The location now sports a sign that declares Discovery Bar by Earthbar as the new resident. Expect a “healthy holistic supply” of vitamins, lattes, bowls, juices, smoothies, and grab-and-go meals.
Self-described “healthy supply company” Earthbar appears to be expanding rapidly. With one location just over a block away in Equinox, they are opening a storefront at 1447 Ocean Ave. in Downtown Santa Monica, facing the beach. Find out if you are an “Earthbar Earthling“, and read more about their proprietary supplements, herbal formulas, and sports nutrition here.
What’s with 2015? Maybe it’s just the time of year, but it seems that almost every new opening is health-related. I’ve never seen so many smoothie, juice, bowl, and açaí joints landing all at once. Adding to the lengthy list, the Westside’s first free-standing Earthbar is slated to hit Brentwood by mid-February 2015 according to their website. Located at 11640 San Vicente Blvd., this is their latest in a string of outlets located mostly inside gyms and malls. Look for a menu of (guess what) smoothies, juices, and healthy snacks that you can read more about here.
