New Hollywood Shop Takes Bite-Sized Approach to Dessert

The West Hollywood, California, restaurant früute is the brainchild of Yolanda “Yo” Santosa, owner of the award-winning design firm Ferroconcrete; her pastry-chef mother, Christina; and her fashion-designer sister, Sylvia.

The dish the trio cooks up is as distinctive as their talents. Opened in July, früute offers tarts with a modern twist. The tarts come in 18 inventive flavors, such as Sea Salt Caramel, Pina Colada, Crème Brulee, Tiramisu, and Passion Fruit. Mimicking the tradition of fine chocolates, the tarts are served in boxes of four or eight.
