Glendale's "Galleria" Has Opened Outdoor Dining in it's Parking Garage


Over the last couple of months - we've all gotten used to bizarre images

This is no different

From Curbed:

When Los Angeles County shut down indoor dining on July 1 — for thesecond time— Gevik Baghdassarian was determined to keep his family’s restaurant open. His employees at Massis Kabob, a local Armenian chain and fixture in the Glendale Galleria’s food court for three decades, began to run stacks of foam-clamshell-encased kebabs to customers as they waited in their vehicles, turning the entrance to the adjacent parking garage into a makeshift drive-through.

But some customers started parking their cars and eating at a handful of tables just outside the food court, a small space which filled quickly and wasn’t set up for social distancing. That’s when representatives from Brookfield Properties, which owns the mall, came to Baghdassarian with another idea: to turn the bottom floor of the three-story parking structure into adining patio.

I'm SO glad they are doing this - and I hope it helps these restaurants through this tough time
