Jin Patisserie Pops Up for Mother's Day

For everyone who is still mourning the closing, now more than a year ago, of Jin Patisserie in Venice, you might want to mark your calendars for Sunday, May 11. That's Mother's Day, and even if you don't have a mother handy (or aren't one yourself), you might want to make Sunday tea reservations, because for that one day only, Kristy Choo's much-loved pastry shop will be taking over Si Laa Thai restaurant on Robertson Boulevard.

Choo will be serving a high tea and, we're told, doing chocolate sculptures. Will there be macarons? I'd say it's a pretty safe bet.

Jin Patisserie served exquisite tea, pastries, desserts, chocolates and macarons on Abbot Kinney for a decade before the shop closed in March 2013, due to a rent increase. Since then, Choo has operated her sweets business from her production facility in Culver City.

Jin Patisserie's one-day pop-up will run from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 11 and will feature an as-yet-undecided menu. For reservations, call Jin Patisserie at (310) 399-8801.
