Head-turning fashion retailers such as H & M, Zara, and Victoria’s Secret will be a big part of the explosive new retail lineup at Del Amo Fashion Center. It’s all part of the ongoing transformation of South Bay’s premier retail destination, which is slated for a grand re-opening this October, when Nordstrom makes its debut at the center.

Foodies won’t be disappointed either as Del Amo Fashion Center is sweetening its dining scene with Great Maple, FRIDA and a relocated Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que.


“With so many new options to dine, shop and socialize, we’re confident that Del Amo Fashion Center will be top-of-mind for a retail experience like no other,” said Lindsay Hermance, director of marketing and business development at Del Amo Fashion Center. “We can’t wait to share additional exciting announcements for more fashion and dining experiences in the upcoming months.”

Originally hailing from San Diego, Great Maple offers seasonal produce, responsible seafood, farm fresh American meat and delectable pies. The farm-to-table sit-down eatery is the epitome of American dining with European flair in a rustic wood interior room designed for libation and conversation. The 6,000 square-foot restaurant will be located next to Nordstrom.

“We’re excited about this opportunity because we think what Simon is doing at Del Amo is going to be first-rate and fits perfectly with our customer,” said Mark David, Founder and Owner of Great Maple.

In addition, Beverly Hills-born FRIDA will offer another tasty option for South Bay shoppers. Specializing in authentic Mexican cuisine in a relaxed yet sophisticated setting, FRIDA serves everything from marinated Arrachera Norteña steaks to slow cooked taco plates, and world-famous mole to its signature “Diablo Margaritas.” Founded by Vicente Del Rio, FRIDA’s South Bay location will occupy a 6,000 square-foot space near Nordstrom.


Already a favorite for the center, Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, which serves plates like Pop’s Beloved Fresh Pan Blackened Catfish, Southern Fried Okra and certified Angus Beef Brisket, will be relocating from outside the center to a 8,899 square-foot space inside the mall, between Macy’s and Nordstrom.


All three new dining options will be attached to the Hawthorne side of Del Amo Fashion Center, with additional restaurants to be announced in the coming months.


Joining Del Amo Fashion Center’s state-of-the-art two-level mall will be a two-level, 25,000 square-foot Zara, an international fashion company; a two-level, 25,000 square-foot H & M, a leading fashion retailer offering quality at the best price; and a 15,000 square-foot flagship Victoria’s Secret, specialty retailer of apparel, lingerie, bras, panties, sleepwear and hosiery, which is slated to be twice the size of the retailer’s typical space.


Other retailers slated to be part of the new Del Amo Fashion Center include:


  • American Eagle
  • Cache
  • Cotton On and Cotton On Kids
  • Express
  • Flip Flop Shops
  • Gold Elements
  • Kiehl’s Since 1851

The grand opening of phase two of the renovation, which is expected to accompany the Nordstrom opening in October 2015, includes the construction of a nearly 2,000-car parking structure along Fashion Way, between the Marriott Hotel and Del Amo’s newer Outdoor Village.
