Bleu Sage to replace Backdoor Bakery
Lots of work has been going on in the old Backdoor Bakery space on Silver Lake Blvd., prepping for the opening of Bleu Sage Cafe. Modem hair salon's Myrna Marin owns the building and will presumably be running the restaurant as well with Jennifer Frankovis. Venice's Ilan Dei Studio has a handy video of the design on their site, and describes the restaurant as green dining that's "modern, earth-friendly and fresh." A beer and wine license is pending, and an earlier community meeting approved the restaurant as long as they contract with nearby businesses for some extra parking, recommending also that they network with Lamill, Reservoir, Spaceland, etc. about traffic and other concerns at the busy intersection.
In this economic climate, projects like Bleu Sage and Reservoir next door are getting off the ground very gradually indeed. We're awaiting word from Marin on a projected opening date.
