San Francisco Centre revives an old San Francisco tradition

San Francisco Centre has officially revived an old San Francisco tradition of “let’s meet under the dome.” The historic dome inside of San Francisco Centre used to originally belong to the Emporium. Those of us who grew up here in the San Francisco Bay Area remember the dome inside the Emporium clearly and now the memories have been revived for a new generation.

Westfield San Francisco Centre’s Restaurant Collection Under the Dome “La Boulange du Dome” has revived the spirit of the café and bandstand which used to occupy the space under the dome inside of the old Emporium since 1896. This newly revived tradition is being celebrated by “La Boulange du Dome” with a special dessert offering; “Le Dome Dessert” which offers chocolate and vanilla crème sandwiched between two almond meringues, covered in crème and white and dark chocolate shavings. Yum!

In addition to the newly opened “La Boulange du Dome,” celebrity chef Martin Yan will open “M.Y. China” in September and on July 11 shoppers can enjoy San Francisco Centre’s summer 3-D light spectacular.
