Back in April of last year, Eater told us about the expansion of DC’s Cava Grill into LA. Well, one branch of the build-as-you-go Greek/Mediterranean restaurant has already opened in The Village at Topanga. But now we know where the second location will be… Westwood (1073 Broxton to be exact). No word on an opening date, but construction is fast and furious.
Apparently the award-winning chocolate chip cookies baked by Jacqueline Kamin are very popular, even among Saudi Kings (I’m not kidding, read my original post here). While originally hailing from the East Coast, Jackie’s Cookie Connection has been shipping their cookies for quite some time, and last Fall, they opened a kiosk in Century City. Now banners are up announcing that they are moving into a storefront at 12901 Santa Monica Blvd. in the Plaza (corner of Bundy) in LA. And they’re not done yet: This will be their headquarters as they expand into Hollywood and Highland and The Village at Topanga. Read more about the rapidly expanding mini cookie empire and watch their trance-inducing countdown clock announcing when the next round of cookies pop out of the oven here.
