is fritelli's doughnut shop in beverly hills out of business??

ers258 Jan 27, 2009 10:14 PM

Went by there this morning to pick some up on the way to the office and it was not open at 730am (it usually opens at 7am)
And then the guys doing construction next door said that they were "closed and out of business."

I called the number on the website and it says that the number has been disconnected and no longer working.

anybody have any news on this?

      eh. never understood the fuss about fritelli's. they needed to change the frying oil more often because the donuts had a nasty aftertaste.

        Looks like they have closed. Donuts were yummy, but last time I was there (in December) the cashier gave me serious attitude. Too bad, though. The construction in that complex probably didn't help business.

          It's there, ers258. It's just moved 2 spaces north on Canon.
          It's hidden behind some temporary construction walls but it's still there.
          They're are some signs pointing from where it used to be to where it presently is.

            Congratulations! You nabbed an entire Eater L.A. article. Usually they just throw in a link with a title.

              And what, they disconnected their old phone number when they moved 2 spaces away and left no forwarding number? Yeah, that will work.

                Fritelli's should second that with free donuts for life! at least a dozen for latindancer!
