Joan’s On Third, Searsucker, Starbucks Evenings To Open At Ocean Avenue South:

The first three high-profile dining establishments planned for Ocean Avenue South were announced on Wednesday by Related California: Joan’s On Third, Hakkasan Group’s Searsucker, and a Starbucks Evenings concept.

Ocean Avenue South comprises two luxury residential buildings, The Waverly and The Seychelle, and 20,000 square feet of commercial space.

The announcement coincides with the first owners taking residence at The Waverly and the commencement of sales at The Seychelle.

The plaza level of The Waverly, Related’s luxury condominium building overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica’s new Tongva Park, will welcome Joan’s on Third and Starbucks, while The Seychelle will host Searsucker’s first location in Los Angeles.

This array of dining options will offer residents of Ocean Avenue South a destination restaurant, a gourmet marketplace, and a premium coffee shop just steps from their home, complementing the array of shopping and entertainment within walking distance in surrounding Santa Monica.

Gino Canori, Executive Vice President of Related California, said the company was thrilled to announce the first retail partners to join the Ocean Avenue South community.

“Each partner will bring its own unique offerings, from a sophisticated sit-down dining experience and a gourmet marketplace and delicatessen to a premium neighborhood coffee house,” Canori said.

Originally opened in 1998 as a catering company on Third Street in Los Angeles, Joan’s on Third blossomed into a Los Angeles culinary landmark.

Family-owned and operated, the company offers an extensive gourmet marketplace, delicatessen and full-service catering and event planning company. The Santa Monica location is slated to open in late 2014.

Joan McNamara, founder of Joan’s on Third, said they couldn’t be more excited to join the Ocean Avenue South neighborhood later this year.

“We love our customers and always welcome them with delicious food and excellent service in a warm atmosphere,” McNamara said. “Ocean Avenue offers the attention to detail and quality that we provide our guests every day.”

Hakkasan Group is pleased to introduce Angelenos to the Searsucker concept, which is known for its adventurous spin on New American classics. 

With locations in Austin, San Diego and Del Mar, CA, Searsucker’s Santa Monica location will feature a menu of unique twists on classic home-style dishes, paired with a lively ambience that will encourage guests to stay long after their meal is enjoyed.

Searsucker partner James Brennan said Ocean Avenue South was elevating the Santa Monica lifestyle.

“Today, Santa Monica is seeing so many exciting design, real estate and tech developments, creating a playground for both the business professional and creative dreamer,” Brennan said. “I see the opening of Searsucker as an extension of this blueprint and look forward to making our guests feel right at home in this idyllic location.”

Starbucks will bring its premium coffeehouse experience to The Waverly with its new “Evenings” concept serving its Starbucks Reserve coffee and, after 4 p.m., wine, beer and small plates.

Ocean Avenue South’s two luxury residential buildings The Waverly, which welcomed its first residents in early-June 2014, and The Seychelle, where sales are now underway, together command a 3.7-acre site along Ocean Avenue, just one block from the Pacific Ocean.

The property is bordered on the south by the hotel, Viceroy Santa Monica, and to the north by the new six-acre Tongva Park.
