What’s Going On At The Old L’Ami Space In Santa Monica?

What’s going on behind those imposing wrought iron gates at 246 26th St. in Santa Monica that used to hide L’Ami, and before that The Little Door, and before that Villetta?  It has sat empty and idle ever since L’Ami disappeared sometime in 2017.  But a carefully tucked away ABC application reveals that there are signs of life.  The app lists the applicant as Operation Success LLC and gives no business name.  A search reveals few clues.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see what develops…

L’Ami Closed In Santa Monica

It wasn’t that long ago that The Little Door Santa Monica turned into L’Ami in their sunny location at 246 26th St. in Santa Monica.  Well, I don’t know what happened, or exactly when it happened, but I recently noticed that they have pulled up stakes entirely.  The website says that they are closed for renovations, but that is all too frequently code for “permanently closed”, which is precisely what Opentable says.  I’ll keep watching to see what develops.
