Plywood Update: Closer Look at RockSugar

Last week we established that the Westfield Century City mall has quickly become a testing ground for new restaurant concepts, especially those of the Asian persuasion: Dumpling newcomer Take a Bao and the Cheesecake Factory's pan-Asian offshoot RockSugar are both looking to open this summer. Thanks to one faithful reader, we now have snaps of the construction site. Plus bonus renderings! A RockSugar rep says you'll be able to see the dining room from blocks away because of those 35-foot windows, and she shared a few more facts: Combined, the interior and patio measures almost 10,000 square feet, the design was in-house, and although we assumed this would be a new chain for the company, they have no plans to duplicate at this time "but that could change." We also learn that Singapore-raised executive chef Mohan Ismail trained at Kalustyan's Cafe, Blue Hill and Spice Market in New York, but finds inspiration from family meals for the menu. Opening date: June 19.
