New Eateries Joining Roster at Westfield UTC

Monday, June 11, 2012

Five new eateries are scheduled to join the lineup of restaurants at Westfield UTC later this year, according to a June 5 statement from mall operator Westfield Group.

Opening in August, in the mall’s Dining Terrace, will be Sarku Sushi Bar and Stone Oven Gourmet Sandwiches & Salads. Elixir Espresso Bar, serving items including coffee, tea and pastries, is set to open in October near Sears.

A December opening is expected for Eureka! Gourmet Burgers & Craft Beer, to be located between Macy’s and the mall’s upcoming 14-screen Arc Light Cinema.

Those restaurants will join the previously announced Tender Greens, set for a July opening in the Dining Terrace. A new Corner Bakery restaurant recently opened near Sears.

The new eateries are part of a larger $180 million renovation under way at the San Diego mall, expected to be completed in 2013, which has also included several new retail stores.
