It was about four years ago when I noticed that “fresh & healthy Mediterranean” restaurant Z Garden had opened a second branch at 313 Wilshire Blvd. in Downtown Santa Monica. I’m not sure what happened, but it appears that they have vacated this location. And wasting no time whatsoever, a hastily hung banner announces that Chou Chou French Pastries & Cafe have quietly slipped in. I’m not certain who’s behind this and there’s not a lot of information out there yet. If you’re missing Z Garden, their other location is still open on Pico.
Update: Read the comment below for more information…
The new owner is French and his name is Thomas sandi and he I well known worldwide for his high end natural gluten free and sugar free amazing parties. He is formerly know for opening one o the best French bakery 5 year ago named ” tarting O hocolat.
Thanks for the information! -TRA
there was a Madame Chou Chou on Main Street a few years ago that served great croissants, plus French Cafe food. Is this the same place?
