It comes as no surprise that the opening of a second Wexler’s in the heart of Santa Monica got the locals pretty damn excited. Staying faithful to the Grand Central Market original, there are bagels, lox, pastrami, and egg salad, with a mix of counter seating and tables. What’s different? Slightly earlier hours, specially-roasted coffee, smoked trout, matzoh ball soup, and some very tasty babka. It’s also far enough from the Promenade to not be a total death trap - which wouldn’t stop us from visiting anyway.
