I recently noticed an ABC application taped to the front of what had been formerly understated sandwich shop Everyday Cafe Seletto in a quieter part of The Golden Triangle at 434 N Camden. The application lists the new business as Beverly Bar. According to this article, the owner Matthew Raanan is working in partnership with Chef Felix Garcia owner of Toca Madera and Tocaya Organica. Otherwise, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of info out there quite yet.
Like many of you, I too have been captivated by the glamorous transformation of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center… (As you probably know, the much-anticipated Eataly opens today.) From time to time, I’ve been posting photo essays of the developments. I hadn’t been in for a while, so I recently dropped by for a gander. Here is the latest round of new eateries…
Step aside Tocaya Organica, another restaurant chain is seriously vying for world domination. I recently came across paper covering the long vacant space at 4020C Lincoln Blvd. in Marina Del Rey announcing that a branch of Burgerim will be moving in. Looking to build thousands of outlets across the globe, you can expect to see a great deal more of this ambitious Israeli chain. Check out this link on their website and marvel at the stunning list of locations that are “coming soon”. To my count, an astonishing 42 stores will be opening in California, and just about as many in both Texas and Florida as well! Apparently, Burgerim‘s concept is about building customized 2.8 oz. burgers utilizing a choice of “3 buns, 6 sauces, 11 patties, and 9 unconventional toppings”. The diminutive burgers are sold in quantities of uno, duo, trio, or 16 party box, and consuming more than one is encouraged.
Signs recently went up on a space in The Point, on the corner of Rosecrans and Sepulveda in El Segundo, announcing that a branch of “modern organic Mexican” chain Tocaya Organica is continuing its unrelenting expansion. Not sure of an opening date yet. According to their website, they’re also opening locations soon in Westwood, Century City, Hollywood, San Diego, Scottsdale, and Chicago.
“Modern Organic Mexican” restaurant Tocaya Organica continues its inexorable march toward world domination. The latest evidence? The rapidly expanding chain has landed a spot at 1140 Gayley Ave. in Westwood.
Ever since short-lived Aestus vacated their space at 507 Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica, I’ve been carefully watching to see what would move in. Well, now we know… The windows were recently papered over informing us that the good people of Santa Monica will soon be able to partake of “modern organic Mexican” at an upcoming branch of Tocaya Organica. With branches in West Hollywood, Venice, and Miami, it looks like in they will also be expanding to Westwood and Hollywood as well, according to their website.
