I live next to a California Donuts, and it was there that I had my first “cronut.” A maple bacon “cronut,” to be precise. However, I’ve often heard it said that you can’t get a real cronut — like a Cronut ™ — anywhere but Soho, New York.
Well, guest what, naysayers? Dominique Ansel, the original creator of the Cronut is coming to Los Angeles to sell the real deal from a pop-up shop outside of the Barneys New York at The Grove.
The event occurs on March 1 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., or until the desserts have sold out. And given the kind of lines we saw at Dumb Starbucks, to meet Grumpy Cat and to see Shia LaBeouf apologize, I’d recommend getting there early if you want one.
There will only be one flavor and that’s Milk & Honey, topped with Tahitian vanilla ganache, honey jam and lavender sugar. Each one is $5 with proceeds going to the Heart of Los Angeles.
