It's not common for new development in downtown Beverly Hills to go unfinished for years, but that is what has become of Ferrarini Cafe on Brighton Way. Eater first reported on the project that took over Le Croissant nearly two years ago. Since then, Milan Architects gutted the space, a liquor license application appeared in the window, and sources confirm that Ferrarini USA was moving full steam ahead towards an opening date. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances caused the project to stall and all of the original partners have since pulled out, according to Gino Martens, who was involved in bringing the project to Beverly Hills. Nevertheless, today, the space looks close to opening, with paper down from the windows and modernist Italian furnishings inside. Stay tuned for an opening date.
