According to the draft Mitigated Negative Declaration, the 5,218-square-foot restaurant will include a new 460-square-foot outdoor patio adjoining 6th Street and the neighboring alley. The restaurant will have 134 seats, 102 of which will be inside and 32 of which will be on the patio. In addition to the sit-down food and alcohol service, La Brea Bakery also proposes to sell beer and wine for off-site consumption in conjunction with the retail sales of baked goods, gourmet groceries, cookbooks and other goods on the premises.
Nancy Silverton opened the original La Brea Bakery in 1989 in conjunction with acclaimed restaurant, Campanile, which she co-owned with her then-husband Mark Peel. Both are credited with setting the gastronomical table of Los Angeles and the world with their emphasis on farm-direct produce and artisan techniques. Silverton sold La Brea in 2001 and the Campanile site closed this past fall.
The Mid-City bakery is located in the 400 block of South La Brea Avenue at the northest corner of 6th Street and La Brea. The new La Brea Bakery will be located about 100 yards north of its original site. No word on when the doors will open althought
