It appears that The Grove is about to get a new Mexican restaurant. You may recall that Cronut king Dominique Ansel’s bakery and upstairs restaurant, 189 at The Grove, quit the location due to problems related to COVID. Now plywood is covering the former bakery space in The Grove announcing a new tenant, Alma Cocina De Mexico. We wish them the best of luck.
Le Bon Dieu of heavenly French patisserie continues to shower confectionary benevolence upon the good people of LA… I’ve been starry-eyed ever since Eater told us about the upcoming arrival of Paris’ legendary pastry shop and restaurant Ladurée to The Grove. But guess what happy surprise I stumbled upon on the corner of Beverly and Dayton in Beverly Hills: It appears that Ladurée is taking over the space that used to house Vosges Haut-Chocolat at 311 N. Beverly Dr. Plywood covers the front, obscuring the diminutive shop and kitchen as it transforms into the jewel box that is their signature style, but I’m confident it’ll be magnifique and I personally can’t wait. Quelle Bonne Chance!
