After chatting with Paul Hibler and chef Jason Neroni earlier and learning more about their forthcoming Superba Food & Bread, Eater decided to hit up the restaurant's proposed locale, a former auto body shop on Lincoln Boulevard in Venice. A very cool and creative site for a restaurant. Cal Asia has signed up to managing the building's construction/renovation, and Design, Bitches, who colored Superba Snack Bar (and won an AIA award for their vision) is onboard here again for design. On their website they have a bunch of renderings which depict Superba Food & Bread as a promising social hub with an exposed ceiling and open layout. It looks like they'll retain some of the auto shop's original bones, while updating the space with an overall industrial vintage aesthetic. The goal is to open by the end of this year.
As a reminder, Superba Food & Bread has been a concept in the making, finally manifesting as a 5,000 square foot breakfast, lunch, and dinner place with a menu developed by Neroni. Hibler is especially excited to bake fresh bread daily and deliver it to locals. More to come.
