Boule Atelier opening

Painauchocolat Boule's opening party last night was a parade of tiny green-tea cream puffs, croissants, mini pains au chocolat, Meyer lemon macarons and pink Champagne. New Boule pastry chef Roman Drocourt, most recently of Ortolan, passed trays of madeleines and financiers himself.

Hidemariko Also on the new Boule team are Hide and Mariko Kubota from Osaka. Hide's baking breads (wonder if the new kitchen is gearing up for some wholesale bread business too), and she's working in pastry. Conspicuously absent was Michelle Myers. But Providence pastry chef Adrian Vasquez was there, and so was former Sona pastry chef Ron Mendoza, who recently left the French Laundry for L'Auberge Carmel and was in town for one night. 

Boule Atelier is scheduled to officially open next week, as is Boule's Beverly Hills outpost. Any others on the horizon? "I would love to open a Boule in Tokyo," says chef-owner David Myers.   

Boule Atelier, 408 N. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles, (310) 289- 9977. Also, 413 N. Bedford, Beverly Hills.

I was wondering where Michelle Myers was too...wish I had seen the green tea cream puffs, but I was pretty full of chocolate anway. My favorite were the pear pates des fruits.

Betty - I can't believe you didn't mention Boule's stellar chocolate and ice cream, not to mention their star chocolatier, Tamara Draper!

I've seen that Boule Atelier trying to open for months now, as well as the Beverly Hills location. I can't wait.. I hope the BH location has more than just sweets, but the space looks like it's only about 800 square feet.
