Something New Is Coming To The Hungry Cat Space On PCH…

I’ve been hearing from a great many of you about a new ABC application pasted to the front of the old Hungry Cat space at 100 W Channel Rd. in LA (Santa Monica).  The Hungry Cat vacated the space back in November of 2016.  It has sat empty since then, but the notoriously tricky spot is showing signs of life.  The application, which reveals no business name, lists the applicant as PCH @ Channel LLC.  A search turns up little info, but the online application reveals a name associated with a real estate office in Pacific Palisades.  I’ve reached out to the agent for more information, but until that happens, I don’t have much more to tell you.  This is a developing story…


The Hungry Cat Closes In Santa Monica, Closing In Santa Barbara As Well!

Recently, a reader pointed out to me that Santa Monica’s outlet of David Lentz’s seafood joint, The Hungry Cat appeared to be closed.  When I went by to inspect last week, a note in the window stated that they were closed for renovations (frequently restaurant code for permanently closed).  However, in the past week, a prominent sign announcing restaurant space available went up that lets us know that they have indeed closed.  Any mention of the Santa Monica branch has been scrubbed from the website and Yelp lists it as closed.  But that’s not all:  The website also declares that the Santa Barbara branch will also be shutting down.  They list a number of reasons including; declining business, the current economic climate, and an offer they couldn’t refuse.  They will be open until Christmas. The Hollywood branch will apparently remain open.
