Long Description:
La Bonne Vie patisserie is part of the Shops at The Grand, a shopping and dining experience unlike any other. A premier destination demands a premium patisserie. Modeled after the great European confection houses, La Bonne Vie ("the good life") at the Grand America Hotel invites you and yours to treat yourself well.

Enjoy artisanal chocolates, handcrafted macarons, French pastries and Italian gelato. We also offer a full Espresso Bar serving classic coffee drinks along with decadent sipping chocolate and sipping vanilla. World-class chefs treat each confection as a work of art, and beautiful packaging makes a gift from La Bonne Vie a special, tasteful treat.

Executive Pastry Chef, Jeffrey de Leon, attended the culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena, California. He worked as a Junior Sous Chef at Bouchon Las Vegas; Pastry Chef de Partie at Alex, the Wynn Hotel’s 2-Michelin star rated restaurant; Pastry Sous Chef at Bouchon Bistro in Yountville, California; and most recently he helped to open Thomas Keller’s newest restaurant, Bouchon Beverly Hills as Executive Pastry Sous Chef. Chef de Leon works hand in hand with the pastry team to create all things sweet offered on menus throughout the hotel and for all meetings and special events held at The Grand. (visit link)

This artistic shop sign is an intricate iron and glass piece that is attached to an artisic light post. It artfully uses a variety of shapes, text fonts, and colors to give an old world feel to it; which seems appropriate for a shop that is "modeled after the great European confection houses".
