Via Grub Street L.A., the Los Angeles Times reports that Maury Rubin has signed a lease for Birdbath in Beverly Hills. Menu item of note: Shave ice! Does this mean the Hawaiian treat is also coming to the New York locations? An employee at the Greenwich Village store hasnt heard anything about it, but weve placed a call to Birdbath HQ just in case. In the meantime, heres an interesting fact about City Bakery: The restaurant discontinued its beer and wine program (it briefly served local varieties at a small bar) but were told that if you ask, theyll pop open an off-the-menu bottle for you. An employee says the bar may make a comeback in the fall.
