The Third Street Promenade is gaining some new pieces for its Gallery.
Santa Monica’s Gallery Food Hall will see two new restaurants enter its halls, Petit Harvest and Street Noods. Petit Harvest will be a farm-to-table concept featuring a healthy, vegetable-heavy menu and will be developed by celebrity chef Graham Elliot (of MasterChef fame) while Street Noods will be an Asian street style noodle bar.
According to K2 Restaurants owner John Kolaski, the two restaurants were a perfect fit and will help round out the diverse selections in the Gallery Food Hall, noting he was particularly excited for Petit Harvest.
“[Elliot] is excited about the Third Street Farmers Market and bringing the farm-to-table concept into a much more approachable environment. There’s not a place u can get fresh farm vegetables and have it right here by the beach.”
The two new restaurants will join a steadily growing food space in the Gallery known as SocialEats. That downstairs section of dining will house “a one-of-a-kind community experience, all built upon a foundation of stellar culinary concepts,” according to the SocialEats website.
“We wanted something that added to that space,” Kolaski said, noting the options of STRFSH, Paperboy and Azule. “With Petit Harvest, it was having a healthier, farmers market-driven concept with a component of sandwiches, salads and more.
With Street Noods, we wanted a place where you can get killer noodles. When it’s 100 degrees out and it’s a beach day, hot noodles actually cool you down when you end up sweating. It’s exciting— get an ice cold beer, grab noodles and walk around [the Promenade] if you want to.”
Soon to join these restaurants in the SocialEats dining area will be David Chang’s Fuku, a fast-casual chicken restaurant, SuperToro (a sushi hand roll bar), Cada Vez (Spanish pintxos), and Adelaide Coffeebar, a coffee-and-cookie-bar-by-day, wine-bar-by night concept.
“We have so many options and the ability for one person or groups of individuals to find something,” Kolaski said. “It’s great quality food at an approachable price point in the heart of Santa Monica.”
Kolaski says most of the restaurants in the SocialEats area will open except for Fuku and Send Noods, which he says are still a couple of weeks out from being ready.
