Hummus Bar and Grill Express Now Open

The new Third Street Promenade eatery opened Friday.

It's time for large, fluffy pita and "killer" hummus.

Third Street Promenade's newest eatery—Hummus Bar and Grill Express—opened 10 a.m. Friday at what was formerly Yangtze's.

Patch got a glimpse of the new interior on Thursday, which looks sleek and modern.

The original hummus bar is in Tarzana. The menu there includes big, fluffy pita bread, an array of salads—spicy eggplant, warm mushroom and beets—hummus and grilled meats. Yelp reviewers give the spot an average of four out of five stars and rave about the "killer hummus and laffa." Some gripe about the prices, which appear to be on par with most Santa Monica restaurants.

The Hummus Bar and Grill Express is at 1333 3rd Street Promenade.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, call (310) 260-1994

I am delighted that Yangtze closed. It was a hang out for drug dealers & users, thieves, pimps & prostitutes----and that was in the front dining room. God only knows what was going on in the back room. Actually, I do know. And so did the Santa Monica Police Department, who turned a deaf ear and a blind eye. A warm welcome to Hummis Bar & Grill. We look forward to dining with you soon.
