Smashburger Heading To Manhattan Village

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.

Dave’s Hot Chicken Replacing Smashburger In Culver City

A sharp-eyed reader (Thanks Jeremy!) noticed a new banner hanging over the space that used to house a branch of Smashburger, at 10704B Venice Blvd. in Culver City.  I went by to have a look.  Sure enough, this address will soon be the home of a branch of Dave’s Hot Chicken.  This will be the seventh location for the poultry purveyor, but they apparently have plans on a larger expansion, including branches in Northridge and Fountain Valley.
