From a simple cup of coffee or a doughnut in the morning to a blowout steak dinner after a day at the mall, these are the best spots to eat during the holiday season at the Westfield Century City.Read More
10 Superb Spots to Eat While Shopping at Westfield Century City Mall
Hot pastrami, wood-fired pizzas, and fancy steaks
Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse
For those looking to splurge after a day of shopping, do so at the gigantic new multi-level Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, which shines with a chandelier glow. The robust, spendy menu obviously leans into red meat and red wine decadence, so be prepared to splurge — both with a hearty meal, and with a big bill at the end.
Eataly is a flagship shopping destination and multi-restaurant space that has anchored the Westfield Century City since opening in 2017. There’s room for everything from wine and snacks to handmade pasta and pizzas, plus gelato, espresso, and loads more in this do-it-all emporium.
Start the day at the semi-hidden La Colombe for coffee and pastries. The tucked-away Level 1 shop is a simple grab-and-go operation, perfect for plotting the day of shopping ahead.
RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen
There’s something nice about stepping into RockSugar, the sprawling pan-Asian restaurant that has endured through the massive overhaul of the mall in recent years. There’s a killer happy hour with $9 cocktails, as well as a full dinner menu that spans from spring rolls and samosas to noodles, curries, whole fish, and large-format meats.
Lifehouse Tonics + Elixirs
For those needing a more rejuvenating lift in the morning, try Lifehouse Tonics for matcha drinks, shakes, and more in the pseudo-spiritual LA realm. Cordyceps, barley grass, and monk fruit coming right up.
Local icon Randy’s Donuts has been expanding like mad over the past two years, including a standalone stall on Level 1 for those all-important morning sugar cravings. Randy’s is perfect for a quick grab-and-go while window shopping.
Anyone willing to spend all day at the Westfield Century City would do well to peek into Javier’s, the massive and lush modern Mexican cantina known as much for its bar scene as its food, which includes a variety of vegetarian and vegan fare.
Bibigo Kitchen Century City
The fast-casual Bibigo Kitchen comes from the folks behind the Bibigo chain, which is known for Korean flavors on-the-go. The robust menu works for an early dinner and for sit-down groups.
Shuck House Seafood + Oyster Bar
Shuck House works for a midday snack for those needing a break from the crowds. Belly up to the seafood bar for freshly prepared oysters and drinks before carrying on with the busy holiday shopping routine.
There may be no better bite available at the Westfield Century City than what can be found at Wexler’s Deli, the local LA deli chain known for bagels, lox, and a whole lot more. The casual stand inside the food court area is great for easy snacking or for light lingering on the patio out front.
