If Caruso Builds It... They Will Come!

125,000 people wanted to be a part of opening day at TAAB as they arrived in droves to finally see what all the media coverage has been heralding! And they were not disappointed!

And the folks just kept on coming as the Glendale authorities reported 475,000 people came to play and shop over the weekend. The stores were packed as well as the restaurants -- there was a three hour wait at the Cheesecake Factory!

According to the Glendale News Press, traffic on the streets moved smoothly. TAAB and the Glendale police were completely prepared making sure no nasty backups occurred.

Surprisingly, TAAB has turned Glendale into a mini Manhattan as it was also reported that many people walked!

Katsuya at TAAB has to be the most amazing place to eat. Not only do they have world class sushi, the ambiance is fierce! It's no wonder this sushi bar is one of the most popular places to eat in Southern California.

Jewel City Diner Redux

Normally a remake would make Angelenos groan, but not this one! Lines were out the door this weekend at the new Jewel City Diner to get a taste of TAAB's recreation of a Glendale fav! With its retro finishings, JCD is the perfect place to grab a fun, casual meal. Not in the mood for a burger and fries? Not to worry, the diner has a wonderful selection of salads and other light treats.

The original Jewel City Diner opened it's doors back in the early 1900s, so it's no surprise that Rick Caruso would want to bring back a touch of history to TAAB. Below is a pic of the original JCD.

Fun fact: In 1910, Glendale was nicknamed the Jewel City.
