Brentwood is about to get a dose of carbs from one of the city’s best bakeries. Clark Street, which started out of a West Hollywood apartment in 2014 before growing to supply some of LA’s most prominent restaurants, is now heading west to 11702 Barrington Court in the heart of Brentwood, ironically enough at the former site of a Le Pain Quotidien. Expect an opening this month.
Clark Street has grown to become one of the most prominent bakeries in all of Los Angeles, with multiple locations in and around Downtown. The first retail opening was a small takeaway stand inside of Grand Central Market, followed by a tiny coffee shop location in Echo Park at the front of the former Winsome building. Since then owner Zack Hall has laid roots with a big flagship bakery and cafe space on Glendale Boulevard in Historic Filipinotown, and now comes a Westside option for fans unwilling to brave the drive east.
Hall has been teasing tight shots of construction tools and freshly-laid tile on Instagram for weeks, before confirming the opening to Eater days ago. The restaurant will follow the same trajectory as the Historic Filipinotown space, offering takeaway breads, pastries, coffee, and breakfast and lunch items daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there will be a dozen or so outdoor tables for those who wish to dine al fresco. And while there’s no official opening date just yet, Hall says that arrival is imminent.
