Craving A Pretzel Croissant ...
from the LAT, july 23rd:
"Maury Rubin closed the L.A. outpost of City Bakery in Brentwood this spring but promised he would open a Birdbath Neighborhood Green Bakery in West Hollywood this year. And so it is. Rubin says he has signed a lease, and a Birdbath bakery -- the first outside of New York -- will open in the newly renovated Pavilions complex at Santa Monica and Robertson boulevards this fall.
...Expect the pretzel croissant plus cookies, muffins, scones and breakfast tartines. For lunch, small pizzas (including the "green pizza," which just made its debut on the High Line in New York) and pressed sandwiches. Vegan options include the sesame-banana-agave cake, pictured above. And the "unusual beverages" refer to edible flower lemonade, the "Two-Tone" (coffee & chocolate), "foamy" organic orange Footprint juice and a new Birdbath hot chocolate."
you used to be able to order them on-line at CITY BAKERY in NYC:
Thanks for the update.
I've been to the new Pavilions and I'm glad it finally opened with a new updated version of the old one.
Truly a nice new addition to the neighborhood.
I was wondering what they were going to do with those spaces that haven't been occupied yet.
Now you've got me truly excited!
