Redstraw Bringing Fusion Style Tea To Century City

I recently noticed fresh plywood covering the space next to upcoming Honeymee on the second floor of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center.  It appears that a new startup, Redstraw Tea Bar, is joining the still-developing lengthy list of new food and drink establishments.  On offer? According to their website, look for “fusion style tea with a variety of toppings”.  They are shooting for a summer opening.

La Vaca Brazilian Grill Heading To Century City

The food scene in the flashy new Westfield Century City Shopping Center continues to evolve…  Plywood covering one of the spots in the still developing food court reveals that it will soon be the home to a branch of La Vaca Brazilian Grill.  With a location in Canoga Park and another in Glendale, La Vaca serves a menu of traditional churrasco, salad bar, and various “hot dishes”.  Look for a May opening.

Honeymee Heading For Century City

It appears that honeycomb specialist Honeymee is heading to the sparkling new Westfield Century City Shopping Center.  Look for a menu of milkshakes, waffles, coffee and tea, and ice cream, including the “babee”, which is ice cream served in a sweet bun much like a hot dog.  According to the signage, they’re shooting for a February opening.

Gelson’s In Century City Invites “Noshing & Imbibing”

Perhaps hoping to catch the overflow of people frustrated with choking crowds of Eataly, Gelson’s in Century City is making some Eataly-esque improvements.  Providing more of an graze/drink/shop experience, a sign explains that they are adding a “Wolfgang Puck Build–Your-Own Pizza and Salad”, a wine and tapas bar, a seafood bar, and a poke bar.  As you can see below, construction is nearly finished.

The Latest On The Westfield Century City…

Like many of you, I too have been captivated by the glamorous transformation of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center…  (As you probably know, the much-anticipated Eataly opens today.)  From time to time, I’ve been posting photo essays of the developments.  I hadn’t been in for a while, so I recently dropped by for a gander.  Here is the latest round of new eateries…

Westfield Century City Expands Its Food Court Space Considerably

Because so many of you are tracking the progress of the developing Westfield Century City Shopping Center, I’m giving you the details as I encounter them.  The latest?  The food court has expanded its floor space by a great deal.  I know it’s hard to tell from these photos, but a new glass wall has been built creating increased floor space.  If you look at the first photo, what you’re looking at is the erstwhile news stand that stood in the outdoor area across from the former Coral Tree Express ( on the far right of the photo).  You can see that the area is now enclosed.  The second photo is standing where the old doors used to be and looking toward Meizhou Dongpo, that is now just outside the new entrance.  What’s going to occupy all this extra space?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
