As part of the first stage in a massive $1 billion investment to revamp Westfield Century City mall, developers incorporated new outposts of popular restaurant brands like Shake Shack, Tender Greens, and the third Wexler’s Deli. The nouveau retro Jewish deli from chef Micah Wexler and Mike Kassar added a couple site-specific wrinkles to their menu, including a New York-style chopped beef sandwich, plus plenty of standard deli classics.
To drink, your best bet is Wexler’s chocolate egg cream ($3). This simple beverage involves an egregious misnomer since there’s no egg or cream. Milk is mixed with chocolate syrup and they finish with seltzer, creating a frothy crown of chocolate bubbles. This drink remind me of blowing bubbles into my chocolate milk as a kid, and it also tasted great.
