Jessica Biel is turning entrepreneur and opening a family-friendly restaurant in Santa Monica, Calif., called Au Fudge. Dubbed a “Soho House for kids” by The New York Post’s Page Six, “it would be a place where A-listers would feel comfortable bringing their kids to dine and take part in cooking activities,” a source told the newspaper.

The concept isn’t just pie in the sky. On Tuesday, Biel posted an enticing-looking foursome of goodies (we spy lemon bars!) with the caption, “Things are getting delicious at our @aufudge tasting! @EsteeStanley & I can’t wait to share these with you… We promise to share. #AuFudge.”

Celebrity stye guru Stanley, a longtime collaborator and friend of Biel and her husband Justin Timberlake, also took to Instagram to share pics of potential Au Fudge sweets, including mini apple pie, chocolate-dipped macaroons, and even Biel sampling a cookie. “Cant wait to open and feed you all!!!,” Stanley writes.

It looks like Au Fudge may be opening its doors soon. Should Blue Ivy and North West clear their social calendars in anticipation? And is Biel, who has admitted to being a bit of an amateur baker, prepared for what happens when a gaggle of star kids have a sugar rush all at once?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

They denied it being a Soho House for kids. It’s just a restaurant. Good research people mag

zainbrain on

@zainbrain on

And there’s no pictures of the restaurant moron so how does it look boring. Go back to looking for a job troll

She has the most beautiful face, awesome body too, Timberlake chose well for a bride, lucky guy!

Great, another celebrity who fancies themselves a restauranteur. How many have failed again? Leave it to the professionals, sweetheart. You make enough dough as it is! Why not be an investor in someone else’s dream, someone who has the skills, training, and background to make it work but can’t get financing due to the economy? They won’t treat it like a hobby.

It doesn’t sound family friendly. It sounds celebrity friendly. It does not sound like the average family would be welcomed there.

debra40 on

who is actually going to be managing and cooking at the restaurant? we know it won’t be her

Love the name of the restaurant! Reminds me of that part in ‘A Christmas Story’ when Ralphie is helping his dad fix the flat tire and he says, “Oh Fudge!” (except he didn’t say ‘fudge’!). LOL

PEOPLE do you really have to ling to EVERYTHING in your stories? The links to North West and Blue Ivy were just dumb and overkill.

Tina on

If it’s a restaurant just where A-listers can bring their kids, what are you telling us for?

Tina on

Mmmm, looks healthy for kids, too.

As yummy as it looks, I don’t know whether pushing sugar is a good idea. Sugar is soooooo bad for you and yet it’s legal.

stacey on

What a cute idea! We’ll be visiting next time we are in Cali!!

Shouldn’t she work on her toilet bowl acting career most of her movies flop and Estee Stanley not much if a stylist from what I’ve read and also what of Estee business with Timberlake, This is prop sly going to fail like everything else she does, what does a stylist and a failed talentless actress know about running a restaurant or cafe or bakery, not jealous just voicing my opinion good luck to them their going to need it, I’ ll stick with Jamie Oliver etc…

mick on

What *Lazy* said People. They’ve already said it’s not a restaurant for A-list kids. Just that it will be kid friendly. Do your homework.

I love Jessica Biel! I’ve been following her on Twitter and enjoy reading about her cooking adventures. I made one of the recipes she suggested (it turned out delicious!), so I trust her judgement about food. Good luck to her!

Tweety on

I wonder why Jessica Biel is not as successful in Hollywood as Anne Hathaway or Jennifer Lawrence? She’s just as pretty and sexy as them but for some reason all of her movies flop. Hmmm

lisa on

Looks like she is wasting JT’s money again… This is pointless

Marie on

Great Idea! But is it all sweet and sugary stuff?

Jackie on

The restaurant will be boring as much as she is!!!
