Manhattan Village’s New Eateries…

You may know that Manhattan Village, the shopping center on the corner of Rosecrans and Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach, is undergoing a major over-haul including adding new buildings and outdoor walkways…  and new restaurants as well.  I’ve already told you about Mercado (already open), and upcoming Urban Plates.  But as you can see at least three more are announced:  A branch of Edoardo Baldi’s coffee and nibbles bar Edo Little Bites, Dan Modern Chinese (which still hasn’t opened in Westwood), and Joey Restaurants are all on their way.

Mother’s Market & Kitchen Coming To Manhattan Beach

I recently noticed an ABC application announcing that Orange County’s natural/organic powerhouse Mother’s Market & Kitchen is taking over the old Fresh & Easy space at 1700 Rosecrans Ave. in Manhattan Beach.  Apparently, this is part of a greater push into LA County that has also resulted in the recent opening of a branch in Signal Hill.  Expect a “wide selection for specialized diets, top quality local and organic produce, [and] the county’s largest selection of supplements”, as well as a “beer and wine eating place”.

Update: Mother’s opens on March 16th.
