There’s this really cool trend taking place of shared communal spaces. Grand Central Market is nothing new but it’s undergone a sort of revamping swept up in the downtown renaissance/gentrification (whether you think that’s a good thing or a bad thing, it is unarguably a thing). The Anaheim Packing District is a newer polished streamlined version of the concept. These places are like mall food courts on steroids. Sleek modern fancified steroids. I happened upon Long Beach’s new SteelCraft endeavor by chance. A smaller version of the above concept, eight different food/drink vendors to choose from and a communal space of wooden tables underneath open skies and patio lights. Craft brews, coffee, pizza, burgers, ramen, shaved ice, baked goods and even waffles.
