It was back in November of last year, when I first noticed that healthy, organic Mediterranean restaurant Soom Soom was expanding into the space at 11704 South Barrington Court in Brentwood. After an extensive remodel of the space, Soom Soom Fresh will throw open its doors today, May 21st. This is the third location in an expanding chain. We wish them the best of luck.
Erratum: This is actually the chain’s fourth location.
With locations in Beverly Hills and LA, it looks like purveyors of healthy, organic Mediterranean food Soom Soom are living up to their website’s promise to expand “across Los Angeles and beyond”. Paper is covering the window at 11704 South Barrington Court announcing their impending arrival. I’m not sure how far along their progress is, but I’ll keep watching.
Recently, I noticed a hastily written note posted on the front door of fledgling B.H. Poke at 9527 Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills, situated in a block that has seen a great deal of turn over recently. As you can see, the note states that they are “taking a little break” due to “unforeseen circumstances”. According to a photo on Yelp, the note has been up since early last month. It looks like no one has set foot in the shop for quite a while. I tried to call and inquire, but their phone line no longer works. So, I can’t confirm if they’re planning on reopening or not, but things don’t look good.
