And while we’re on the subject of Main St., things are about to get a whole lot sweeter. Right across from now-defunct Wildflour Pizza, construction is underway on a new candy kitchen and shop, A Real Treat Candy Boutique at 2724 Main St. in Santa Monica. With one store already at 10800 West Pico Blvd. in LA, ART promises a natural selection of house-made candies that are free of artificial sweeteners, with vegan, kosher, gluten-free, and allergy sensitive choices that you can read more about here.
Long-standing local institution Wildflour Pizza has finally closed its doors at 2807 Main St. in Santa Monica. Wasting no time whatsoever, construction is underway on what will shortly be a brand new “wine and beer garden”, I’m told. And while I’m not certain of the name, the design review lists Edmund Silkaitis, long associated with Café Montana, as the applicant. Look for an opening in about 30 days.
