It’s almost time for the full reveal of USC Village, a massive mixed-use building right off the University of Southern California campus that promises to help redefine dining for students and locals alike. Retail and restaurant tenants are all coming on board quickly, with Urbanize LA quoting an August arrival for the project, which spans tens of thousands of square feet.

The first name to be listed in association with USC Village is The Butcher, The Baker, the Cappuccino Maker from up on Sunset Boulevard. They’re shortening the name to BBCM for ease of use, but should be doing all-day dining with 1,000 square feet of pure patio come next month.

Another notable arrival is Honeybird, the quaint La Cañada Flintridge fried chicken option that has found a home among the foothills. Owners Phil and Michelle Lee teased the second location in an Instagram video from earlier this year, quoting a fall debut. Rock & Reilly’s Irish Pub has also signed on, and rumors abound about other possible tenants, from ice cream to coffee on down.

Eater reached out to the business development team of USC Village about the property and proposed future tenants, but so far hasn’t heard back. Regardless, the property is going to start seriously filling up as early as next month, so soon enough all will be revealed. Got news in the meantime? Hit the tipline or the comments below.
