Another day, another chowhounder investigation. Today one of the chowhounders happened past Compartes Chocolatier and was alarmed to see both construction and camera crews at the Barrington and San Vicente site. Is it going out of business? Is it sold to Jamba Juice? Is it going to become a macrobiotic, vegan, South Beach friendly scene? Is that even possible?
Like many women (and men) of a certain age in LA, Compartes is undergoing a little nip/tuck. And in true LA fashion, is doing it for a reality show, as part of the Food Network's Restaurant Makeover. So never fear, the "rolls royce of stuffed fruit" (their description, not ours) remains, just a little more bright-eyed and slightly bushy-tailed.
