Dominique Ansel Brings Cronuts to LA; Are You Happy Now, LA?
The rest of the world may have cronuts on the mind, but that’s because they haven’t tasted one. We New Yorkers, on the other hand, have burnt out on the entire phenomenon — especially the ones who work out of SoHo who trip over salivating cronuteers every time they try to get to work on time (yeah, this is us) — and so we’re very glad to report that Dominique Ansel, a.k.a. Dr. Cronutstein, will partner with Barney’s to sell a limited run of cronuts in Los Angeles.
Yes, Los Angeles, the land where the fro-yo and cupcakes trend retired and are maddeningly still alive, will now welcome the cronut to its shining, radioactive shores. Ansel announced that on March 1st starting at 10 AM, he would personally sell the pastry at a pop-up at The Grove LA outside Barney’s New York.
Cronut prices will remain the same as they are in NY ($5 a pop), lines will likely wind for miles, and everything will probably be sold out within the hour. Someone will probably attempt to scalp some cronuts, too, and celebrities/cartel leaders might pull strings to get their hands on some sweet, sweet pastry.
Please, LA, share in our misery.
