Any favorites for a nice dinner in the Century City Shopping Mall?

    If you've never been to RockSugar, it's a real dining experience, not so much for the food, but because it's a bit like eating on the set of Raiders of the Lost Ark or Tombraider. The food is a mixture of different SE Asian foods and is actually pretty good, but you feel like it's done better elsewhere. Just my two cents. We actually plan to be back sometime.

    Usually we go off site to Hole In the Wall or Sawtelle Blvd or dinner

      The tuna burger at Gulfstream is very good. For a higher end experience, consider going across the street and enjoying the mini plates at Craftbar.

        In addition to Craft and Gulfstream, Houston's is also solid.

          Isn't Breadbar & ludobites in the mall??

          Never mind, I'm thinking of something else....

          How about that Rocksugar whatever place?

            There is a location of Breadbar in the mall, but Ludobites is at the 3rd Street location of Breadbar (and I think only for one more week).

              We have really been enjoying Toscanova, across the way from Gulf Stream and next door to Houston's. Really good pasta dishes, nicely prepared seafood, and a tastey grilled chicken dish. Plus, their fried calamari and zucchini appetizer is excellent and only 10 bucks for a huge plate.

              Rocksugar is very...sugary. I don't like the food very much because I find most of it cloying, but I know people who like it. Their take on sliders is pretty tasty. I'd much, much rather go to Houston's or Gulfstream if I was eating in the mall, though.
