  • This was always known as the high end mall. The mall changed when Saks Fifth Avenue left and a movie theatre went in. Bloomingdales is the anchor. This isn't a big mall. But is at the center of mall.....  more »
  • All the high end stores (Tiffany, Louis Vuitton) and good eats ( Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang’s, Rosa Mexicano) give you lots of options and choices and great service as long as you bring lotsa $.  more »
  • It's a mall.. small. There isn't a wow factor here. Nothing crowd attracting. Probably the investment is not worthy it? Still there are some eateries where I visit once a year or so. How about a large children's place? How about a mini public movie theater in open space?? How about a game marathon to attract the crowd? How about a free food tasting in a corner? I mean... do something.
  • Great dining and service at any of the restaurants you may choose. Traveling in the parking lot is challenging with the construction going on at the present time. Just leave yourself a little extra time for parking and possibly locating a restaurant or store that might have been relocated. Upscale restaurants and stores for those lucky enough to be shopping there. Enjoy!!
