San Francisco — La Boulange, the bakery-café chain owned by Starbucks, has opened its first restaurant outside its base of San Francisco, in Los Angeles. The new all-day menu offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, using local California-sourced ingredients wherever possible, as well as tap wine and beer and specialty cocktails.
The restaurant features a “modern farmhouse”-inspired design to create a warm, inviting and relaxed atmosphere. Every element from the butcher block-style tables to the chairs, subway tiles, lighting, stenciled concrete, signage and artwork, has been selected to foster this warm, inviting and relaxed atmosphere.
“Since opening our first bakery, Boulangerie, in San Francisco in 1999, our vision has always been to share our passion for incredible food in a great atmosphere with as many people as possible,” said Pascal Rigo, founder of La Boulange. “Having the opportunity to bring that passion to the vibrant Los Angeles food scene is incredible and a natural next step for the La Boulange brand.”
