Big news for West Side burger afficionados: Santa Monica’s beloved construct-your-own burger eatery (is “burgery” a word?) The Counter is opening a new location in the Marina. The new Counter is tucked away at the end of the Waterside Marina del Rey shops, near the corner of Admiralty Way and Fiji Way (and believe me, my duty to serve our loyal readers with useful information barely eked out a win over my selfish desire to keep this location “undisclosed,” Cheney style).
According to the guy pictured on the ladder out front, The Counter opens this Monday. I peered inside, and the place looks to be all set up, with the staff holding a meeting on those trademark metal chairs.
Perhaps The Counter’s expansion to the Marina will shorten the wait at their Santa Monica location. Or maybe, like L.A.’s roadways, when they build more, more inevitably will come.
