Chef and restaurateur Andre “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” Guerrero has another new project up his sleeves, following the recent opening of his old-school American-Italian Maxmiliano in Highland Park and the even fresher debut of Belgian Little Bear in Downtown. Los Angeles magazine reports that the chef is now planning to open a bakery next door to Maximiliano. Recalling his scuttled Buttertart Bakery project in Glassell Park, the new bakery will offer breads baked on the spot, house-made pastries, and espresso from a Synesso machine. Editor Lesley Bargar Suter whispers that other chefs are rumored to be scouting a move to the neighborhood, predicting its return to the hustling, bustling good ol’ days.
