Back in October of last year, I told you about the imminent arrival of Burgerim to the space at 4020C Lincoln Blvd. in Marina Del Rey. They recently have thrown open their doors for business. On the menu? Their proprietary brand of customized 2.8 oz. mini burgers, with a choice of “3 buns, 6 sauces, 11 patties, and 9 unconventional toppings”, that are sold in quantities. The opening of this branch is one more step in the ambitious Israeli chain’s inexorable march toward world domination.
And now here’s me thinking the whole poke thing was beginning to slow down… Paper is up on the window of the space at 4020D Lincoln Blvd. (corner of Washington) in Marina Del Rey announcing that a branch of Aloha Poke Co. is moving in. I’m not sure when exactly they’ll be dishing raw fish, but I’ll keep watching.
Step aside Tocaya Organica, another restaurant chain is seriously vying for world domination. I recently came across paper covering the long vacant space at 4020C Lincoln Blvd. in Marina Del Rey announcing that a branch of Burgerim will be moving in. Looking to build thousands of outlets across the globe, you can expect to see a great deal more of this ambitious Israeli chain. Check out this link on their website and marvel at the stunning list of locations that are “coming soon”. To my count, an astonishing 42 stores will be opening in California, and just about as many in both Texas and Florida as well! Apparently, Burgerim‘s concept is about building customized 2.8 oz. burgers utilizing a choice of “3 buns, 6 sauces, 11 patties, and 9 unconventional toppings”. The diminutive burgers are sold in quantities of uno, duo, trio, or 16 party box, and consuming more than one is encouraged.
It looks like expanding “simple, seasonal, healthy” chain Sweetgreen is bringing its community building message to the grateful people of Marina Del Rey. Plywood is up around a space in the Waterside shopping center at 4700 Admiralty announcing the good news. Not sure when they’ll open, but I’ll keep watching…
Recently I told you about the move of Johnny Memphis’ Smokehouse from its location in the Manhattan Village Shopping Center to Downtown El Segundo. A reader was quick to let me know that the move was necessary to make room for the upcoming expansion of the mall. One other casualty was the popular Eastern European restaurant Doma Kitchen (the name means “home” in Slavic), that sat just to the right of Johnny Memphis’. But the plucky little eatery isn’t done yet… They have indeed pulled up stakes in Manhattan Beach, but they’ve landed in a brand new location. Doma Kitchen is now open in Marina del Rey in the Villa Marina Marketplace at 4325 Glencoe Ave. #8.
For some reason that I don’t entirely comprehend, a great many of you are BIG fans of Chik-fil-A. Well then, here’s some welcome news for those of you that count yourselves in that group: Signs recently went up on the old defunct Del Taco at 4050 Lincoln Blvd. (just south of Washington) announcing that the structure is being converted into a branch of the popular poultry purveyor. No word on an opening date yet, so y’all will just have to wait…
The poke frenzy continues… With a location in LA and Glendale, it appears that Mainland Poke Shop is moving about as far west as you can go. The windows are papered over in the tiny shop just to the left of Kreation in the Waterside Shopping Center at 4700 Admiralty Way in Marina Del Rey announcing the impending arrival. Looks like they’ll start dishing raw fish sometime this Fall.
