And while we’re on the subject of Century City… It was back in early September when I told you about the arrival of Palm Springs’ Brandini Toffee to the space vacated by Yagourt & Bougatsa on the second floor of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center. For those of you who have been waiting to try to celebrated sweet treats comes this happy news: Brandini Toffee officially threw open their doors on Tuesday, November 19th.
When hometown low-calorie ice cream expert Halo Top laid down brick-and-mortar locations, people went crazy. Recently however, I’ve been hearing from readers that the locations have abruptly closed. So, I went by the Westfield Century City Shopping Center to check things out. Sure enough, a notice on the front proclaims the sad news that all Halo Top Scoop Shops are now finished. Could it have something to do with the recent acquisition of Halo Top by Wells Enterprises, the people behind Blue Bunny? But all is not lost: You can still find Halo Top in local grocery stores.
While it can take months (or even years… Hello Honeymee?) for some shops to open in the Westfield Century Shopping Center, some arrive almost overnight. One that snuck in while no one was looking is a branch of Taiwanese chain Wushiland Boba, which is now open on the second floor near Petros. Expect a menu of various teas and sweet or savory waffles. Oh, and that flying fish with a cup on its back logo? Eater reported a few years ago that his name is Larry.
You could be forgiven if you thought that the food scene at the Westfield Century City Shopping Center has stabilized after the remodel. Latest case in point? The capricious food court is gaining a new resident: Fuwa Teriyaki Grill.
Trouble for Everytable? With a visionary concept of bringing fresh, nutritious, made-from-scratch meals to a fast food world, Everytable ambitiously sought to transform the food scene along the lines of what McDonald’s did a half century ago. But sadly, their location in the Westfield Century City Shopping Center is now vacant, and so is their spot in Santa Monica’s mercurial The Gallery. Other locations appear to be open.
Everytable Century City…
Everytable Santa Monica…
A prominant window display lets us know that HRB The Hand Roll Bar Experience is landing in the freestanding shop located on the second floor, just outside of the Food Court of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center. The still-developing website doesn’t list a menu yet, but I think we can take a wild stab at what will be on offer. It looks like there’s a location coming to Downtown LA as well, on W 6th St.
One of the last remaining spaces in the food court of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center is getting a new resident. Plywood covering the space lets us know that Sunset Blvd. burger joint Rock House Sliders will soon be landing in the tony mall. Not sure when they will be opening, but you can look for a straight forward menu of diminutive burgers, fries, and shakes.
