Rawkin Juice Squeezed Out Of Santa Monica

The humble space at 705 Montana Ave. in Santa Monica has sure seen its share of trouble.  It was only back in June of last year that I told you about the arrival of celeb fave Rawkin Juice to the spot that previously had been occupied by short-lived Orchard Flats Juicery.  Last week, a note was taped to the front door saying that they had closed for “renovation” (frequently restaurant code for ” permanently closed”).  This week the for lease sign went up on the space confirming the sad news that they have indeed closed.  Is the honeymoon over for the pressed juice craze?

Rawkin Juice Bringing Hip To Montana Ave.

I’ve been watching the space that used to house Orchard Flats Juicery at 705 Montana Ave. in Santa Monica to see what would move in.  Signs are now up confirming that branch of Burbank’s Rawkin Juice will be moving in. Rawkin Juice was  recently purchased by Miami’s Hip Cuisine, which intends on expanding the mini chain.  If you check out their Facebook page, you can see they’ve had designs on the Santa Monica location for a while. Popular with the studio/star set, look for a menu of raw/vegan/cold-pressed/organic/you get the picture…
