@cares - you need to stop shopping at Saks and go to the cheaper side of the mall.

There is also the hall global eatery closer to claimjumper

Haven’t tried this place though

Went to the Crossroads Target (I don't really like the Marketplace one for some reason) and saw that the Flamebroiler is closed.

I actually prefer Waba over Flamebroiler (there was one I used to go to in Lake Forest across from The Hat... not sure if it's still there).

Speaking of Bruxie, I noticed last night that the old Bruxie on Culver/Walnut has been replaced by a Fire Wings (I'm assuming still under construction). Never eaten there before.

Buffalo Wild Wings and Fire Wings in the same plaza should be fun for them both.

They are actually in separate plazas. BWW side is owned by Meadows Asset Management in Newport Beach. Fire Wings side is owned by Regency Real Estate Group LLC in Texas. Usually, in most plazas, there is a non-compete clause for retailers in their lease agreement.

Interesting, did not know that. I would guess the non-compete doesn't apply for food though or has other limitations in some cases, as Wendy's and Habit are steps away from each other.

It just depends on how well the leasing agent for the retailer drafted the lease agreement and how they categorized themselves. And also I don't know, maybe that plaza doesn't have a non-compete clause in any lease agreements. But yea that's why you won't see multiples of the same store at the same plaza usually. The incumbent tenant doesn't want competition naturally.

Strip malls only leverage the non-compete when it suits them.

How many tea shops do you see in one plaza?

Heck, Raising Cane opens next to Chik-Fil-A whenever they can.

Yoshiharu Ramen coming to Orchard Hills Shopping Center. Never heard of them but they have multiple locations in SoCal. They better bring their best given all the local competition: Kitakata, HiroNori, Shinsengumi, Santouka etc...

http://www.yoshiharuramen.com

Yoshiharu Ramen opened few weeks ago.  Ramens are pretty good.

Finally tried Yoshiharu. The tonkotsu ramen is really good. They sear the pork and it has nice flavor. I would avoid the fried gyoza--hard and dry.

Speaking about noncompetes, it's weird to see Yoshiharu Ramen open up 2 doors down from Jinbei in an Irvine Company strip mall.

Hiro Nori at Irvine Center Dr. is pretty good. Their remen got Michelin so I had to try. It was surprisingly good. Broth was cooked over 24 hours so it shows in deep flavor unlike so many places fake with salt. My favorite is still Orochon at Downtown LA though.

I see many restaurants are packed with so many people now days. People are spending like crazy after lock time was dismissed.
