Prima Baja Cocina Miraculously Opens On Montana

Well that didn’t take long…  It was only back in August when I told you about the abrupt closure of local fave Pradeep’s at 1405 Montana Ave. in Santa Monica.  Then, days later, window paper informed us that something called Prima Baja Cocina was swiftly moving in.  With so many of you following this story, I’m amazed to tell you that Prima Baja Cocina officially opened last night (Wednesday, Oct. 3rd). If you follow the restaurant scene ’round these parts, then you know that such a fast turnaround in Santa Monica is practically miraculous.  Look for a tight and well thought out menu of Baja-style tacos, salads, starters, and larger plates in a bright and airy atmosphere with friendly staff.  (Check out the prototype menu below, but I’m told it’s still in development and subject to change.)  We wish them the best of luck.

Update: Eater has more of the details here.

Prima Baja Cocina Replacing Pradeep’s On Montana

It was only about 2 weeks ago that I told you about the sad demise of Santa Monica institution Pradeep’s at 1405 Montana Ave.  At the time I had heard that a new Mexican restaurant was expected, but I had no details.  The wait is over:  Paper recently went up in the windows giving us the name of the new eatery.  There isn’t much information out there on Prima Baja Cocina, except for a developing website that promises us tacos and a September opening.
