Duff Goldman Plans Retail Pastry Shop on Beverly


According to Zagat, recent L.A. transplant Duff Goldman is looking to show off some of the other skills in his quivers, going beyond the pastry chef's reigning reputation as "the cake guy." Goldman reveals he's planning a new retail store on Beverly Boulevard across from CBS Studios, calling the project the "exact opposite of Charm City Cakes." He says there might be cupcakes and cake, but the idea is intended to highlight his touch in making pies, scones, and petit fours, in a sort of "Frenchie/Austrian pastry shop with really really kickass coffee."
