Have you noticed the road work on Montana Avenue this week between 16th and 17th Street? Hard to miss, right!? The City is replacing the old transformers throughout Santa Monica—thirteen total.
In other construction news …
The previous Yogurt Land space will be opening soon as the new Beaming restaurant. Serving healthy smoothies, juices and take-out. Boasting a raw food menu with veggie lasagna, soup and gourmet salads.
Another new healthy spot is the gluten-free, vegan, and paleo friendly Kye’s – a wrap alternative. That space has had a lot of turnover in the past several years. Formally, The Pizza Place, then Grateful Bread and before that a French Restaurant. I guess they finally figured carbs are out!
The previous Blue Jeans Bar location is currently under construction, the new tenant is Jigsaw USA Inc. A contemporary boutique based in London. Selling women’s apparel, shoes and accessories.
