We found the new, forthcoming location of Mendocino Farms looking just about ready to serve Marina del Rey. If there’s one negative for Westsiders hoping to switch their Godmothers out for a new bite, it’s that Mendo is coming to Rick Caruso’s Waterside shopping development, at the absolute southernmost point of the Marina, meaning the Downtown locations might be still more accessible for many Westsiders than finding their way here. It would have seen more traffic at the restaurant space still for rent just south of Lincoln and Washington. A smart move for Mendo though, as the small mall swells with nearby condo dwellers and worker bees at lunch, and the land-ravagers over at the Playa Vista development have apparently won the right to add 2,800 new homes to the Westchester Bluffs. The store is hiring on April 17th, meaning an opening could occur towards the end of the month.
4724 Admiralty Way. Marina del Rey.
