Five New Dining Options Coming to Santa Monica Pier

Set Within the “Snackville” Food Area, the Concepts Come from a Michelin-Starred Chef

Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier is set to unveil “Snackville,” a food area featuring five culinary concepts by Michelin-starred Chef James Kent. The grand opening is scheduled for Friday, June 7.

Situated at what was formerly Pacific Park’s oceanfront food plaza, “Snackville” introduces five new dining options:

  • Smashie’s Burgers: Offering smash burgers, loaded hot dogs, and fries, Smashie’s features charbroiled burgers topped with American cheese, grilled onions, and Smashie Sauce.
  • Mr. Nice Fry: Serving a variety of fries, including Skinny Dippers, Swirly Fries, and Tater Wheels, with a selection of dipping sauces and seasonings.
  • eegee’s: This Arizona beverage staple debuts in California with real fruit and frozen drinks.
  • Churrita Churro: Providing options like cinnamon-sprinkled, dulce de leche-filled, and chocolate-dipped churros, with or without soft-serve ice cream.
  • Scoops Creamery: Serving hand-scooped ice cream, milkshakes, sundaes, Dippin’ Dots, and funnel cakes topped with Lappert’s premium ice cream.
  • Cosmic Funnel Cake: Known for its signature funnel cakes, served with various toppings like powdered sugar, strawberries, whipped cream, or ice cream.

SC Holdings, which recently acquired the operating group of Pacific Park, has committed $10 million in capital investments over the next five years. This funding will enhance food and entertainment programs, ensuring Pacific Park remains a vibrant destination for tourists and the local community.

Chef James Kent’s culinary journey includes prestigious establishments such as Bouley, Babbo, and Eleven Madison Park, where he earned three Michelin stars. His own ventures, Crown Shy and SAGA in New York, have also garnered Michelin stars.
