Most recently it was Holsteins, serving boozy shakes and burgers, and before that, it was Charlie Palmer. Now the first U.S. location of Paradise Dynasty, the internationally acclaimed Singapore-based dumpling restaurant will move into that prime 5,000-square-foot space at Bloomingdale’s in South Coast Plaza.
And that’s not all. Paradise Dynasty will anchor the upstairs at a new food hall called Collage, and its sister restaurant Le Shrimp Ramen will be right downstairs with 8 or 9 other places offering sit-down service. The total space is 16,000 square feet, with a new area carved out of the lower level which served as a warehouse for the department store.
