Don Chuy’s Restaurant Replacing Shalimar Of India In Culver City

With all the self-isolation lately, I’m simply not out in the community as much as I normally would be, and I really appreciate when readers send me stories.  Recently, one reader (Thanks Keith!) sent me this photo of an ABC application on the front of what was formerly Shalimar of India at 10708 Jefferson Blvd. in Culver City.  As you can see, this will be the future home of Don Chuy’s Restaurant.  There currently is a Don Chuy’s at 11800 Jefferson, but I’m unclear if they’re moving locations or if this will be a second branch for the Mexican restaurant.

Baja Catch & Grill Replacing Gaby’s In Playa Vista

Not that long ago, Playa Vista’s branch of popular Mediterranean restaurant Gaby’s Express vacated its longtime space at 12219 Jefferson Blvd.  Now a new eatery is hoping to lure in the area’s hungry tech crowd.  A large banner on the front informs us that Baja Catch & Grill is moving in.  I can’t find much information on Baja Catch & Grill, but I’m willing to take a wild guess and say that fish tacos will be on offer.
