BOA, Sushi Roku Coming To Manhattan Beach

You know I’ve been reporting on the massive redevelopment of Manhattan Village, ostensibly transforming it into a major shopping and dining powerhouse.  There has been an explosion of new eateries landing in the shopping center.  You can add two more to the list.  A banner is informing us that BOA Steakhouse and Sushi Roku are on the way.  Both are part of the Innovative Dining Group or IDG.

CAVA Comes To El Segundo

It looks like El Segundo’s The Point shopping center, on the corner of Rosecrans and Pacific Coast Highway, is about to get a new eatery.  I told you about the closure of buzzy Umi by Hamasaku back in October of last year.  Window covering is letting us know that this location will be the future home of expanding Greek/Mediterranean restaurant chain CAVA.

Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt Coming To Manhattan Beach

Remember that colossal redo at Manhattan Village on the corner of Rosecrans and Sepulveda?  It’s about to get a whole lot sweeter.  Plywood is up announcing that a branch of Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt is taking one of the spots in the new part.  Handel’s Ice Cream had its beginnings in Youngstown, Ohio when a woman named Alice Handel began serving it in 1945.  They operate over 60 locations in a number of states and offer over 100 flavors of ice cream and yogurt that are made fresh daily at each location.

Umi By Hamasaku Closed In El Segundo

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.

Sidecar, Sweetgreen Confirmed For Manhattan Village

If you follow this blog, then you know that I’ve been carefully watching the massive redo of Manhattan Village in Manhattan Beach.  The extensive project will add a whole new open air addition called Village Shops, greatly expanding the retail and restaurant space.  The latest restaurant news?  I now have confirmation that the wildly beloved bakery Sidecar Doughnuts is opening in the Fall of 2020, and popular purveyor of salads and bowls Sweetgreen is slated for the Winter of 2020.

Van Leeuwen Scooping Soon In El Segundo

Van Leeuwen, who started out in 2008 in New York as a food truck, is turning into an empire with locations on both coasts.  Paper is up the windows of the kiosk (that was previously Lil’ Simmzy’s) in the center of El Segundo’s The Point informing us that they are about to land an outpost of the popular purveyor of frozen treats.  On offer?  Artisan ice creams, vegan ice creams, sundaes, vegan chocolate chip cookies, and shakes.

Chin Chin, BBCM Now Open In El Segundo

I first told you about the arrival of a brand new Chin Chin and BBCM (The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker) to the space that used to be occupied by P.F. Chang’s back in early April.  Since then, there has been a deluge of people checking for updates, so here you go…  Both Chin Chin and BBCM are now up and running in their new locations at 2041 Rosecrans in El Segundo.  You’re welcome.
