News, Din Tai Fung in Glendale leaving Americana at Brand for Galleria competitor : detailed suggestions and opinions about Din Tai Fung in Glendale leaving Americana at Brand for Galleria competitor .
After nearly 10 years of serving its famous xiao long bao at the Americana at Brand in Glendale, Din Tai Fung said this week it plans to leave for the neighboring Galleria mall in the fall of 2023.
At the Galleria, Din Tai Fung will open along Central Avenue at the mall’s main entrance and will occupy an 11,443-square-foot space, with an additional 2,260 square feet of patio area, making it the largest of the chain’s locations in Los Angeles County, according to Lindsay Kahn, a spokesperson for Brookfield Properties, which owns the Galleria.
A Gap clothing store currently sits in the Galleria space where the restaurant will be featured. It will relocate to another property in Glendale, Kahn said. The restaurant also will occupy a mall store that is now vacant.
“We have been looking for a larger space,” Aaron Yang, Din Tai Fung’s vice president, said in an emailed statement. “This move will allow us to include more seating, add a patio and provide a better working environment for our team.”
