I’ve been carefully followiing the massive overhaul of the Manhattan Village Shopping Center, on the corner of Rosecrans and Sepulveda. They’ve been adding outdoor walkways and a massive increase of retail and restaurant space. While much of it is still under construction, the new restaurants are staking their claims. Sunlife Organics is bringing their message, “to love, heal, and inspire”, and their proprietary juices, shakes, bowls, and coffee to this spot in the old section of the mall, facing the new development.
If you read this blog you know that Manhattan Village, the shopping complex on the corner of Rosecrans and Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach, is undergoing a major redo. Loads of new retail and restaurant spaces are on the way, with many new eateries already slotted to move in. Add one more to the list: Signs recently went up on one of the new spaces announcing that a branch of expanding burger chain Smashburger is on the way. Looks like they’re shooting for a Spring opening.
And while we’re on the subject of The Point... It appears that Umi by Hamasaku has given up the ghost at thier location at 8050 S Sepulveda in El Segundo. Umi caused quite a stir when it expanded to this neck of the woods from West LA, bringing Hamasaku chef Yoya Takahashi’s signature sushi and izakaya dishes.
It appears that a new restaurant is replacing the estwhile Superba in The Point, on the corner of Rosecrans and Sepulveda in El Segundo. Paper is covering the windows announcing that this will soon be a branch of Little Sister. With two locations and two more on the way (the other coming location will be in the Irvine Spectrum), Little Sister offers a unique take on cuisine resulting from “rich collisions of food and culture that was borne out of the European colonization of Southeast Asia”. Check out their menu here.
