San Francisco’s Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen is moving into the former Amacita space in Culver City. It’s a timely win for Southern California, especially after a recent New York Times story claimed California (and Los Angeles) has better bagels than everywhere else.

What Now Los Angeles confirmed the news via a real estate broker who put together the deal. Wise Sons will be in a central spot in Downtown Culver City, right next to Amazon Studios and HBO. There’s no timeline on the opening. Rumors of the prominent bagel maker/deli making its way to Los Angeles have been circulating since 2019.

In August 2020, Josef Centeno closed his celebrated Tex-Mex restaurant “for the foreseeable future.”
