A New Food Hall With Over 30 Restaurants And Rooftop Dining Is Coming To L.A.
Earlier this year, we reported that the Beverly Center will get a makeover that includes the addition of a massive food hall that will be partly curated by Michael Mina.
Now we're getting word that, less than a mile away, another food hall will be opening at 8001 Beverly Boulevard. According to information posted on LoopNet, a real estate site, the building will have two levels (and a third, if you include the rooftop) that cover 50,000 square-feet. There will be 31 spaces available for food and retail (with 7 of them on the roof), and 13 spaces for retail and fitness on the second level. Also included are 300 parking spaces for visitors.
As noted at Eater, the place may be centered around the concept of a quick and hassle-free experience—the service may be done via table-side tablets.
So far, the only confirmed lease belongs to chef Octavio Becerra, who'll take over a space that's detached from the building. Becerra's latest venture was the former Acabar, from which he dished out Moroccan fare.
In the renderings, the space seems to aspire for an open and airy design that's replete with glass walls and wood paneling. And if Edin Park's promo materials are any indications of the developers' expectations, we should see restaurants that canvass a spectrum of different cuisines and dining concepts. The images show a sushi joint, a wine bar, and a French bakery. There are also a lot of pictures of (very fit) people doing yoga, so we guess you won't be finding an Arby's in here.
While this all sounds fine and good, don't hold your breath just yet, because Edin Park isn't slated to open until winter of 2017.
