Take A Bao Expands Into Studio City with New Approach

New, 2 comments

Through the grapevine comes word that Take A Bao has secured its second iteration in Studio City, so we decided to check in with owner Brent Stein for an update. According to Stein the new space is located in Studio City just a few blocks east of Laurel Canyon on Ventura. Because Take A Bao 2.0 claimed an active restaurant and the owner hasn't informed staff yet of its shutter, the exact address still remains undisclosed. Anyway, over the next few weeks Stein will submit construction plans to the city with the hopes of starting demo in February and opening in June or July 2011. MASS Architecture (Intelligentsia Venice/Pas, Mas Malo, Lemonade) has signed on to transform the space which will, not surprisingly, manifest itself quite differently from the original fast casual Take A Bao located within the Westfield Century City mall. In Studio City expect a more upscale menu (though still affordable) within a larger freestanding space (plus parking!) that will also offer a "strong" alcohol program.
