Coming later this month (Sept. 1 “at the latest”) to space formerly home to Le Pain Quotidien in Brentwood, at 11702 Barrington Court, is Clark Street Brentwood, Owner Zack Hall Friday told What Now Los Angeles in an interview.
“We’ve always wanted to move to the westside for a long time, that’s where I’m from,” Hall said. “It took a while for that to happen. We were scared of the high rent. It’s more affordable on the east side but with the current market, I took one walk through the space and I was like, ‘let’s do it.'”
Hall, who was born in Santa Monica Hospital, said the deal was made less than a month ago and now, about six-ish weeks later, will be ready to debut the new Clark Street. The 1,000-square-foot space will be similar in format to the company’s Echo Park location and only underwent some minor renovations (think new finishes like paint, tiling) to match the look and feel of the growing brand.
Out of the Brentwood space, expect Clark Street’s staple pastries and bread alongside coffee and breakfast, available daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be a few spots for eating al fresco via a fenced-in back area and a few tables out front. Hall said to look for an opening in the next few weeks, September 1 “at the latest.”
Hall founded the company in 2014 out of his apartment in West Hollywood and in 2015 Hall moved out of his home kitchen and took up shop in Grand Central Market in DTLA. Hall later opened a 3,000-square-foot bakery/café in Echo Park and a flagship space on Glendale Boulevard in Historic Filipinotown.
