Magnolia Bakery Restaurant Review

: An L.A. branch of New York’s acclaimed Magnolia Bakery has opened on Third Street (there’s also a location in Bloomingdale’s in Dubai), offering top-drawer baked goods with a touch of nostalgia. All the favorites from the East Coast are on hand at this light-filled, breezy outpost---from layer cakes to the buttercream-topped cupcakes Carrie Bradshaw nibbled in "Sex and the City." And Magnolia is one trendy bakery that has not abandoned the art of pie-making in its rush to conquer a crowded cupcake field, offering the indulgent Southern specialty of black-bottom pecan pie. If banana is your thing, the banana cream pudding (in a pie or bowl) can be quite addictive. Watch staff hustle to keep the cases stocked while you wait in what could be a very long line.
