Patina's Coffee + Milk Opens Today at LACMA

Pastry chef Josh Graves at the ovens
The Patina Group's new "chef-driven coffeehouse" debuts in the former Pimento space at LACMA today. Joachim Splichal, corporate exec chef Gregg Wiele, and Ray's pastry chef Joshua Graves headline the new Coffee + Milk (C+M for short), with sommelier and cocktail master Paul Sanguinetti doing boozy milkshakes at the cafe.

What to expect: The culinary team created "milk sorbet," a creamier sorbet that's not quite ice cream, in a variety of ways - scooped, in "milkwiches" made with Graves fresh-baked cookies, and in milkshakes (spiked or not). You'll find baked goods like hand pies and savory "pop tarts," cake by the slice (Elvis cake!), and savories like Benton's country ham and truffle butter sandwiches on baguette. The coffee is locally roasted Intelligentsia. C+M opens daily at 10 AM, except Wednesdays when the museum is closed.
