I wanted to create a space to really show my passion for design and showcase my pastries and treats as artwork.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 8, 2009
Pastry Chef Kristy Choo makes a bold statement with her location selection for the second Jin Patisserie by choosing the InterContinental Los Angeles Century City. Located adjacent to the lobby in the hotel, the boutique's urban modern design is a departure from the organic tea garden setting of the Venice location. Choo explains, "I wanted to create a space to really show my passion for design and showcase my pastries and treats as artwork."
Like her edible artwork, shape and color figure prominently in the new space. The white walls are accented with geometrical cut-out shelving and bright colors accent the shelving and pastry and chocolate display case. Choo also designed three free-standing jewelry store inspired display boxes to showcase seasonal chocolate sculptures and gifts in the front window. Lucite bar stools serve as seating at the bar facing the front.
Menu items exclusive to the new location include "Trio of Chocolate" ($15) hot chocolate and chocolate flower lollipops ($4.50). "Trio of Chocolate" consists of three pieces of solid chocolate (1 milk and 2 dark) melted individually and served with steamed milk. The customer has the choice of creating a custom blend of hot chocolate. Jin Patisserie's full selection of renowned chocolate candies and cakes are available along with cookies, treats, tea, and gift items. All of the Patisserie's pastries are made with only fresh, natural ingredients and do not contain preservatives.
