If that Bradley Ogden restaurant at USC already has you jealous of today’s college punks, Pepperdine might be a new target for your wrath. This past weekend, the Malibu-based Christian university opened La Brea Bakery Cafe, an extension of the artisan bread shop where James Beard Award-winning chef Nancy Silverton rose to fame. New to the 500-square-foot eatery is a sandwich dubbed for the school’s mascot called “Willie the Wave,” voted in by students through a contest to name a University-themed sandwich. Open weekdays from 7:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M.
