Meet In Paris Bids Adieu To Brentwood

Well THAT didn’t take long…  It was only back in May when I told you that Culver City’s Meet In Paris was expanding into the old La Scala space at 11740 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood. (At the time, I was told the name was going to be Café Parisien)  I’m not sure what happened, but readers have been letting me know that after only a few months, Meet In Paris has closed down.  I’ll keep watching the space to see what develops.

Café Parisien Says Salut! To Brentwood

Thanks to a tip from a reader, I went to check out what was going on at the former La Scala space at 11740 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood, after La Scala’s recent relocation to Wilshire Blvd.  Sure enough, a new ABC application is posted on the front.  While no business name is listed, the applicant tracks to a location in Culver City, which happens to be French charmer Meet In Paris.  So I called Meet In Paris and spoke to a source who told  me that the Brentwood space will soon be the home of a second branch of Larchmont Village’s Café Parisien, sister restaurant to Meet In Paris.  I’m told that the menu will be similar to the Meet In Paris menu, but with a stronger emphasis on dinner, like Café Parisien.  They’re shooting for an end of May opening, “fingers crossed”.  We wish them the best of luck…
