Driving around last night in Santa Monica, I noticed many restaurant closings. Crocodile Cafe on Ocean Avenue has closed, although a restaurant called BOA is taking it's place.
Broadway Bar and Grill on the 3rd Street Promenade has closed.
Rebecca's on Ocean Avenue is closed, and so is Wolfgang Pucks on Montana.
There is rumor that L.A. Desserts is trying to lease the space next door to the Ivy on Ocean Avenue.
Anyone hear of any rumors of new tenants occupying these spaces? I think downtown Santa Monica could use some nice, new restaurants.
The good news is Barney's Beanery is opening on the 3rd Street Promenade (I'm joking).
