Wexler’s Deli is on the move, jumping into Century City with a new stall at the Westfield Century City. The space is still under construction now, but you can find renderings above showing off what the slot will look like inside the dining terrace this August.

The expansion into the Westfield universe is likely a smart one for Micah Wexler and partner Michael Kassar, as it brings the team back to their original look and feel first found at Grand Central Market in Downtown. First operating as a casual counter doing breakfast bagels and killer lunchtime pastrami, the shop last year expanded into bigger digs in Santa Monica.

The Westfield jump also potentially puts Wexler’s Deli on track to earn a whole new clientele, something akin to what chef Johnny Lee has done with his mini empire inside the Westfield Santa Ana dining court. There’s lots of money to be made going that route, and with the revitalized mall coming back online later this year — including a spiffy Eataly — the crew is primed to have a big year at their new digs. The 400 square foot Wexler’s Century City should open by late summer.
