L’Amande Bakery Leases Former Retail Space; French Fare Planned for Summer
By Laura Coleman
Signaling the continuing strength of the Beverly Hills market, L’Amande Bakery & Café snapped up the lease for the Grosvenor Americas owned-property at 9530 S. Santa Monica Blvd. this month.
Following in the footsteps of the incredibly successful Monsieur Marcel, which opened this year on North Canon Drive, L’Amande is similarly hoping to capture the hearts of the French-adoring Beverly Hills crowd when it opens in July at the former home of Sharper Image and Radio Shack.
“Beverly Hills is back and more exciting than ever,” said RKF President Robert Cohen, who helped broker the 2,019-square-foot lease for the café, which will feature an outdoor patio. “It’s experiencing a great revival.”
