Here’s a different take on seafood by the beach: Wexler’s Deli is coming to Santa Monica.
The smoked fish and pastrami sandwich emporium currently enjoys one of the busiest stalls at Grand Central Market, but just today comes confirmation that a new location is in the works, and it’s well west of Downtown. Situated at 616 Santa Monica Boulevard, between 6th and 7th Streets and right across from the library, the new storefront promises more space not only for customers, but for production as well.
Currently the former language learning center space is all papered over, but owners Micah Wexler and Michael Kassar are indeed taking it over and plan to use the larger footprint to expand into delivery and work on more catering gigs. The overall look and feel should remain roughly the same as the GCM location, which is wrapped in white subway tile peppered with some hand-drawn graphics showcasing the Jewish deli heritage of the place.
No official opening as of yet, so stay tuned to that address as things start to come together.
