Bok Bok Continues Its Expansion Westward With Two New Locations…

The recent turnover in the food court of the Century City Shopping Center is breathing new life to into the dining scene there.  Plywood is up on the space that used to house Bibigo Kitchen (which has moved locations in the mall) announcing the impending arrival of Bok Bok Mediterranean.  And that’s not all:  According to their website, they will be opening a location at 235 Main St. in Venice as well.  Look for a menu of panini, pitas, and plates of shawerma, falafel, rotisserie chicken, with other Mediterranean specialties.

La Créme Café Coming To Century City

With all the bad news about restaurant closures in the Westfield Century City Shopping Center, it’s refreshing to see that a new venture is taking a chance.  Plywood is up on the food court spot that used to house Everytable declaring that West Hollywood’s “simple European-style nook” La Créme Café is planning on a Spring opening.  Look for a menu of organic coffee & smoothies, waffles, crêpes, and panini.

Beleaf Café Replaces Fala Bar In Century City

Unless you looked very closely, you might not have noticed that Fala Bar quietly transformed into something now called Beleaf Café in the food court of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center.  While I’m told there is no relationship between the former and the latter, the look of the eatery and the menu are very similar.  Beleaf Café has one other location in the Westfield Topanga Mall, and features a 100% plant-based menu of burgers, sandwiches, falafel, and salads.

Petros Disappears From Century City

After the major overhaul of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center, Greek eatery Petros snagged one of the choice locations on the second floor.  Sadly however, it appears that they has quietly vacated the commodious space.  Not sure what happened, but you can still visit their other locations in Manhattan Beach, Solvang, or Santa Barbara.

Brandini Toffee Now Open In Century City

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.

Halo Top Scoop Shop Closes All Locations

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.
