Burgerim Opening Soon In MDR… And Just About Everywhere

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…

Doma Kitchen Moves From Manhattan Beach To Marina Del Rey

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.

Chik-fil-A Comes To MDR

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…

Mainland Poke Shop Coming To MDR

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.

Azabu Sushi Bar & Grill Replacing Mosto Enoteca In MDR

Signs have recently gone up in the upper deck space that used to house Mosto Enoteca at 517 Washington Blvd. announcing that a brand new entity, Azabu Sushi Bar & Grill is taking over.  While the windows are papered over so I can’t get a glimpse of the progress, the red banner hanging outside informs us that they will be opening soon.  I can’t seem to locate too much information on this new restaurant, but I’ll keep looking…

Nancy’s Raw Juices Now Open In MDR

I recently noticed that yet another juice joint has popped up in Marina del Rey.  Nancy’s Raw Juices & Milk Tea has moved into the space that used to house an old convenience market at 105 W. Washington Blvd.  Nancy’s offers a menu of cold-pressed juices, smoothies, soups, and milk teas and doesn’t yet have a big online presence, just a Facebook page that you can check out here.
