On November 26, French bistro and bar, Coco Laurent, will open its doors to the public. Featuring high ceilings and 7,000 square feet, the new restaurant was designed in classic French style with accent pieces such as handmade chandeliers flown in from France.
LA Eater reports that Coco Laurent will seat 300 guests and serve “lunch, dinner, late night items and weekend brunch”. The restaurant is owned by Vincent Terzian (previous owner of Crocker Club) and Parisian chef Guillaume Jouvet is at the helm of the bistro-style kitchen. Diners can enjoy their meals either in the dining room or on the outdoor patio, but there is also a smaller deli area for customers to grab a coffee or tea and to-go items like artisan sandwiches and puff pastries. A happy hour is planned in the near future and Coco Laurent additionally offers a full bar.
Coco Laurent has something for everyone, including their decadent brunch, which includes lavender and honey buttermilk pancakes, assortment of omelets, and a Crepe Suzette that will have you feeling like you are sitting at a charming creperie in Paris, served with hot blood orange reduction, candied lemon zest and orange cointreau compound butter.
Coco Laurent will be open from Sunday to Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday/Saturday from 7 a.m. to midnight. It is located at 707 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, California.
