Back in October of 2010 in the location of the former Lighthouse restaurant at 2nd and Arizona, (201 Arizona), a notice was posted in the window announcing the imminent arrival of a new Tender Greens. I remember seeing over the summer that the spot was empty.
Along with Anisette Brasserie, Broadway Deli, and Fat Burger, this is just another instance of a downtown Santa Monica restaurant closure.
There are other signs that things are not all roses for these businesses. My doorknob was recently the recipient of a dinner special notice at Wokcano, which used to be one of the most posh dining establishments in the area.
