It’s no secret that we can’t wait for Jessica Biel‘s new L.A. restaurant Au Fudge to open its doors — and it appears that we won’t have to for very much longer.

On Tuesday, the restaurant posted a shot of their newly-lit sign on Instagram. “We’re almost there!! We can’t wait to share our space with all of you and your families!!,” they captioned.

The restaurant, which Biel is opening with designer Estee Stanley, will focus on healthy, colorful food (both sweet and savory) with a vibe that’s accessible to everyone. Business partner Joey Gonzalez (also the CEO of Barry’s Bootcamp) spilled some more details on the project on Instagram, calling it “a community clubhouse adults and children alike will enjoy.”

Among the kid-friendly feature he mentions are playrooms and on-site au pairs, as well as indoor and outdoor dining and a marketplace.

Indeed, Biel has always envisioned Au Fudge as a place to bring the little ones.

“We wanted to create a place where you bring your kids or your girlfriends,” she told PEOPLE in September. “It’s for the adults. But you have to do something for the kids so they can be happy and have fun so we can be happy and have fun.”

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.
