Sessions West Coast Deli to Open 4th OC Location at Macy’s Fashion Island


Known for its inspired, chef-crafted sandwiches, Sessions West Coast Deli has announced that its fourth location is set to open at Macy’s Fashion Island in September 2019. The new restaurant will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a menu that focuses on its signature sandwiches, burgers, breakfast, small plates and gourmet salads. Additionally, Sessions will feature full barista service, as well as kombucha, craft beer and wine on tap.

Since opening its first location five years ago on the Newport Beach Peninsula, Sessions West Coast Deli has received national attention for its scratch kitchen, where housemade sauces, sides, salads and soups are prepared in-house daily. All sandwiches, salads, small plates and toasts are made to order with fresh, locally grown produce and carefully selected ingredients.

“Sessions is excited to partner with Macy’s to join the Fashion Island culinary community and present our unique offerings in a relaxed environment,” commented Matt Meddock, Partner of Sessions West Coast Deli, along with Beckham Thomas and Executive Chef Max Schlutz. “With views of the Pacific, gorgeous fountain steps from our front door and a few new items to debut on our menu, our fourth location is primed to be our most exciting to date.”

The 1,200-square-foot restaurant will feature 24 seats and open into a Fashion Island fountain courtyard with ample communal seating. As with its other locations, Sessions will feature local breweries in its craft beer program. Guests will also be able to take advantage of unique coffee offerings and full barista service. Chef Max Schlutz plans to introduce vibrant new menu items to speak to the Fashion Island customer, including a flavorful Vietnamese Grilled Beef Salad, a hearty Mediterranean Chopped Salad, and a Crispy Caprese with fried green tomatoes and fresh mozzarella.

“Macy’s is thrilled about the addition of Sessions West Coast Deli to our Fashion Island store in Newport Beach,” commented Michael Ellmann, Vice President of Strategic Projects, Southwest Region, for Macy’s. “As Macy’s looks to reflect the local community, Sessions represents the Southern California lifestyle. Our customers will now have a new food experience when visiting at Fashion Island.”

Sessions West Coast Deli will be located at Macy’s Fashion Island at 101 Newport Center Drive in Newport Beach. Hours will be 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. For more information, please visit
