Avocado Toast Ice Cream Sandwich Coming To Cronut Creator's L.A. Restaurant
When in #California. Our Avocado Toast Ice Cream Sandwich at @DominiqueAnselLA, with avocado olive oil ice cream, ricotta mascarpone ice cream, and shortbread, topped with dragon fruit, freeze dried raspberries, olive oil and sea salt to finish. We’re opening FRIDAY, NOV 10TH at 9AM. Just 12 day to go! ✌️🥑🍦 #DAinLA #DominiqueAnselBakery #avocadotoast #icecream
Dominique Ansel's L.A. restaurant and bakery won't open until November 10, but that isn't stopping the pastry mogul from sharing some of his upcoming L.A.-themed desserts. Ansel is jumping head-first into the West Coast and has been concocting some super creative treats like a mousse dessert that looks like a California Roll, milk bread arranged to look like elote, and an avocado toast ice cream sandwich. He previously announced his L.A. cronut with a white peach amaretto jam and muscavado ganache, so it looks like the bakery menu is going to be stacked with amazing treats.
For dinner at @189bydominiqueansel, our Pull-Apart Sweet Corn “Elotes” Milk Bread, inspired by one of my favorite late night street foods in LA. Made with soft warm pull-apart milk bread filled with sweet corn purée, tasty served in a purple corn husk and topped with lots of Cotija cheese, chili, and a squeeze of lime to finish - it’s our way of breaking bread with family around the dinner table. Dinner and Weekend Table brunch reservations are live now on @RESY. Dinner starts NOV 11TH, and we can’t wait to cook this for you all very soon. #189byDominiqueAnsel #DAinLA @TheGroveLA
T-minus 14 days until FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH, opening day of our first West Coast bakery @DominiqueAnselLA. We’ll open our doors at 9AM, so I hope I’ll see you here. Excited to create all new pastries just for LA with the best California produce we can get our hands on, like this Gooseberry Elderflower Pavlova, made with a light vanilla meringue filled with fresh local gooseberries, orange elderflower jam, and mascarpone ganache. See you all soon, #LA. ✌️ #DominiqueAnselBakeryLA #DAinLA @thegrovela
Here’s one of our exclusive-to-LA pastries for @dominiqueansella: our “California Roll,” a little tribute to some of our favorite California ingredients, made with avocado mousse, vanilla lime mousse, honey gelée, and olive oil biscuit. We’ll see you bright and early on opening day, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH at 9AM! Can’t wait to meet everyone. @dominiqueansella #DAinLA @thegrovela
Going to a new city isn't a cut and paste job for us. It's about new challenges and inspirations. Like the California poppy flower that turned into this Paris LA: our take on the Paris Brest using orange blossom ganache, muscovado ganache, and raspberry Chambord jam. T-14 days until opening NOV 10th! @dominiqueansella #DAinLA
Another only-for-LA addition to our @DominiqueAnselLA bakery menu: our Ruby Tart, with pomegranate seeds, lychee ganache, cherry jam, and almond frangipane inside a vanilla sablé tart shell. Reminds me of Dorothy’s ruby red slippers in The Wizard of Oz. There really is no place like home, and we’re excited to welcome you all to our new West Coast home soon. Opening day of the bakery is FRIDAY, NOV 10 at 9AM! 😊 #DAinLA #DominiqueAnselBakeryLA @TheGroveLA
Ansel is no stranger to city-specific desserts; his Tokyo location has a melon pan called the "Mr. Roboto" and the New York location has a "Paris-N.Y.," which is a New York-specific version of the Paris brest dessert. The L.A. desserts are gorgeous renditions of the colors and flavors we can find throughout the city—Ansel really did his research. Admittedly, though, avocado toast has had its run of relevance. Can we all move on from the dish? And no, I'm not just saying that so I can hoard all the avocados for myself.
The bakery opens its doors at 9 a.m. on Friday, November 10, and the restaurant—189 by Dominique Ansel— has its first dinner seating the night of Saturday, November 11. Also, brunch starts on Saturday, November 4, before 189 has fully opened. Reservations are already booked for the first few days of service, so hop on over to Resy ASAP if you want to get a table sometime before 2018.
189 by Dominique Ansel and Dominique Ansel Bakery will be located at 189 The Grove Drive in Los Angeles.
