  • News Rainforest Cafe in South Coast Plaza is now closed

    I just read in this morning's Daily Pilot (local newspaper for Newport Beach/Costa Mesa) that the Rainforest Cafe in South Coast Plaza closed suddenly last Sunday. Apparently the mall decided not to renew their lease. A Chinese restaurant called Din Tai Fung will be moving in to its space.

    Wonder what implications this will have, if any, about the DTD location?

    Probably nothing. South Coast Plaza is notorious for doing this. They did the same thing (I think) to this great restaurant called the Back Bay Rowing and Running Club.
    I dined at the South Coast location a few times. Food and service were worse than the Downtown Disney location.

      I just googled the name and that place sounds pretty good. Can't see why they'd need so much space, but I will definitely look forward to eating there!
      It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

        South Coast Plaza has been aggresively aiming for a very upscale market in the last five years.

        The old 1990's cheesy theme restaurant vibe that Rainforest has definitely does not play in to that demographic. Think ultrahip Marche' Moderne instead of dusty animatronic gorillas grunting over your carb-loaded microwaved dinner.

        The Sears at South Coast is rumored to be next.

          ^ I think that could backfire badly with the local shoppers of South Coast to close Sears. Sears is also one the original anchors of the mall.

            Sears as a company has gone out of business.

              Care to expand on that.

                Wow, that is saying something. I have dined at the DTD Rainforest 3 times, and all three times were terrible. I would not go back if it was free.
