UPDATE (4/17/14): Eater has an update on the expansion. M+O is indeed taking over the adjacent space, which previously housed a clothing retailer. The new space will include a second pizza oven and an expanded overall menu. Hopes are everything will be done by "early October."
Milo + Olive, the Santa Monica pizzeria bakery that has been the popular cheerleader since inception back in 2011, may FINALLY be growing in size. The above picture was posted to their Instagram account with the following caption:
This will come as over-joyous, ticker tape parade-like news to any Westsider who has braved the current M+O seating arrangement that comfortably welcomes twenty customers - at best. Lines stretching down the restaurant's entry ramp and out onto the Wilshire sidewalk have become commonplace. The restaurant has often emphasized their take-out option, but like most great pizza places, the goods are best eaten fresh from the oven. This dining room addition should allow such an occurrence for substantially more patrons.
No other details for now, but I will stay on this with total seats added and possible opening date, amongst other details, to come.
