Carvel Now Open in West L.A!
For those of you who have fond memories of going to Carvel back when you were kids...you will be happy to know that the new West LA Carvel (on Santa Monica, just east of Sepulveda) is open as of 11:00 today!
A little dinner at Zankou, and then a trip to Carvel for dessert. Sounds good to me!

There's a second Carvel's on Pico in the Ralph's complex almost directly south (maybe a little more east) of the one on Santa Monica. It's on the second floor.
May I say that Carvel's vanilla soft serve ice cream is probably a purist's closest to heaven mouth experience.
Wish them all the best the 2nd time around. They sure died a fast death here back in the 80s. Maybe all the easterners who have arrived since then will propel them over the top this time.
It's a major pain to go to this Carvel - they have a valet that insists (at least when I've gone) parking your car, even if it's just to run in for a Brown Bonnet!
