Sidecar Donuts Expanding

Sidecar Doughnuts will be opening a new location in Culver City, as reported by ToddrickAllen.com which should be opening in early 2022. The space already has Sidecar branded signage in the windows, as new Sidecar locations always do, and is located in the Culver Center in space 350. Sidecar has a reputation for selling some of the freshest and most innovative doughnuts in Southern California, so this is great news for Culver City. 

Malibu Italian Restaurant Coming to Palisades

As reported by What Now Los Angeles, Spruzzo Restaurant and Bar has a second location of its restaurant in the works for the Pacific Palisades. While the restaurant was announced as opening earlier this year, the space at 538 Palisades Dr. is not open as yet. Spruzzo is an Italian restaurant that features pizza and pasta and has a beer and wine list. The restaurant is aiming for a late 2021 opening to serve the Pacific Palisades. 

Popular Micro Chain to Open Near Rancho Park

Everytable, as reported by Toddrickallen.com, the micro chain that focuses on fresh and healthy food options where prices are scaled to fit the neighborhood of the individual restaurant, will be opening a location in the Culver City area. It will be opening at 10419 W. Venice Blvd and the company plans for a Nov. 12th opening. The owner Sam Polk first formed a non-profit organization to address healthy food scarcity in South Los Angeles and two years later opened the first Everytable to make it easier for everyone to find healthy and affordable food options anywhere. His plan is to open 400 Everytable restaurants in the Los Angeles area. 

Popular Ocean Park Cafe Closes

The venerable OP Cafe has closed permanently, as reported by LA Eater.com as of Sept. 26. After 40 years, the incredibly popular spot located along Santa Monica’s Ocean Park Boulevard has sadly not been profitable during the pandemic. Owner Mark Verge will transfer the remaining employees of the restaurant to his other restaurants, so they will not be losing their jobs due to the closure. The restaurant had been open since 1979.
