Laurent Triqueneaux, founder of The Woods and Cafe Laurent, will add to his eponymous empire with the soft-open of Bistro Laurent tomorrow morning in Culver City. This is a cozy, casual space of small tables with vintage and family photos just a few blocks below Venice Blvd. Its neighhbors over at Squid Ink report that the Normandy native is focusing on a menu of quick French classics here including pastries, coffee, whole wheat croissants, crepes, and baguette sandwiches like jambon-buerre, with Triqueneaux speaking very openly about his heavy dependence on Darigold butter. The new bistro debuts Wednesday morning on Sepulveda, with an official grand-opening set for, naturally, Bastille Day. A website is currently under construction.
Bisto Laurent will soft-open tomorrow at 7:30 A.M. 3936 Sepulveda Blvd. Culver City. 310-398-7443.
