The Americana at Brand is a new mall in the style of a European square crossed with the lavishness of the Bellagio in Las Vegas. I'm talking about their fountain that dances to the piped outdoor music. Their grass and gardens are impeccably maintained despite the crowds that walk and sit on it every weekend. The shops are high end-- Apple Store, Tiffany's, Nordstrom, Barnes and Nobles, Anthropology, Urban Outfitters. (The Kitson moved into the Glendale Galleria.) The restaurants are trendy with good service, and great food-- Frida's (Mexican), Katsuya (Japanese, Cheesecake Factory (American/Southern California), Dean Deluca's Deli, and many more. A Sprinkles cupcake shop just opened-- craveworthy ice-cream and cupcakes. They removed the children's park, but I did see kids kicking a ball around on the grass. The movie theatre is still outstanding (Pacific 18). Its a great place for a dinner and a movie, and even a better place to spend an afternoon.
