Preparing to bake
Culver City’s upcoming Bianca Bakery seems nearly ready to serve. The quiet restaurant has been slowly transforming the closed former Cannibal space at the Platform project, and is teasing out plenty of Instagram shots of everything from quiche to croissants to seafood stews and rich croque madames. Eater reached out for confirmation on an opening date, but the place is still a work in progress.
Shake it up
Shake Shack continues to push into all corners of greater Los Angeles, with the latest location reportedly coming to the heart of Santa Monica. The space at 501 Wilshire Boulevard was formerly a Panera Bread, but now Toddrickallen says that it could well be a spot for popular burgers sometime soon.
Join the crew
Angler is getting close to opening at the Beverly Center. The upscale seafood restaurant from chef Josh Skenes is now hiring for a variety of positions inside the restaurant, which means the timing is getting close.
