Sessions West Coast Deli Slated to Open in June at Macy's South Coast Plaza

Sessions West Coast Deli is taking Orange County’s ritzy-est shopping centers by storm.

The surf-themed sandwich shop, which already had locations in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and Irvine, landed at Macy’s Fashion Island in 2019. It’s slated to open in June at Macy’s South Coast Plaza, where it will replace Wolfgang Puck Bistro.

While Sessions is typically counter service, the owners are considering table service during dinner in Costa Mesa as well as creating partnerships with local craft breweries to offer a tap beer selection that rotates once a month.

The patio will allow Sessions to capitalize on brunch as well.

Tootsie on June 2, 2022
Special Ticket Price: $100.99

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony-winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic’s Pick is “a joyful delight” (The Washington Post) that’s “so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!” (Bloomberg).

Come From Away on June 23, 2022
Special Ticket Price: $100.99

Pretty Woman: The Musical on July 7, 2022
Special Ticket Price: $106.00
