Despite the usual complement of Americana (Gap, Victoria’s Secret, Cheesecake Factory, and so on), this pretty, Mediterranean-style outdoor mall with its alfresco architecture is inviting not only for shoppers but also friends or spouses who’d prefer to sit at an outdoor cafe while said shopper is busy in the fitting room. Fat Tuesday on the second floor attracts a happy-hour and late-weekend-night crowd, and on that same floor, one cool homegrown shop worth noting is Palm Produce. There’s also a multiplex with cushy assigned seats and at-seat food-and-drink service, and Thursday through Sunday evenings you can also take in live music on the steps.
