I hope they improve their lunchtime restaurant offerings. It is difficult to get a simple salad, soup or sandwich with emphasis on healthy fare.

I hope they improve all restaurant offerings. Flemings is excellent, Yucca and Max's leave a lot to be desired. Bring back the Stanford Barn restauarant center (including the candy store)!

Now we know why they never cleaned the front of the Bloomingdale's building and especially the overhang at the entrance facing El Camino which was really filthy the last five years or so - they were planning on tearing down
The new plans sound nice but so far Simon has been a big disappointment in what they have done at Stanford. Removing the Bravo Fono with its beautiful glass wall, one of the nicest architectural features in the center, replacing it with a Children's Place and plastering a Nike sign along that formerly beautiful corridor for example. The local Palo Alto Coffee Roasting was replaced by a Starbucks. Many of the buildings and awnings look
dirty especially on the north side of the center. The top of the Macy's Building seen from a distance is filthy. The center has become a mishmash
of architectural styles and sometimes incompatible colors. Fortunately
Stanford did many beautiful upgrades before the center was sold to Simon
