Santa Monica Place Mall Reopens Today

After shutting its doors for a major overhaul in 2008, the Frank Gehry designed Santa Monica Place mall immortalized in films like Fast Times At Ridgemont High and Terminator 2 reopened today at the south end of the Third Street Promenade. The redesign removed the roof and gutted the interior to better take advantage of the mall's location steps away from the beach.

With six fine dining restaurants and a brand-new food court, the mall aims to become a culinary destination. Caroline On Crack has a complete rundown of Santa Monica Place's new dining options.
