Birthday cake truffles, cereal milk, cereal milk soft serve, crack pie, savory bagel bombs, and all the other goods that Momofuku Milk Bar has to offer will soon be landing in Los Angeles. While their entry into the L.A. dining scene has been confirmed by reps, no details are available yet. It's believed that they will open in 2017.

The NYC-based Milk Bar (which has been expanding pretty fast) is run by Christina Tosi, who is currently seeking out a spot to move into (Tosi herself was recently in town, likely scouting). According to Eater, it will probably be "in the heart of the city," but no lease has been signed yet.

We've reached out to the Milk Bar team for more details, and will update when we hear back.
