Hundreds of people huddled inside Richmond Centre on Thursday morning, eager to get their first look at the new $30 million Dining Terrace, which replaces the mall's food court.

A pair of escalators lead to the new second-floor eating area—where the mall's theatres once stood—which now boasts a decidedly upscale theme and open-air feel.

And with many of the prior food court's favourites returning, along with some notable newcomers, the investment appears to have been well-placed, based on the looks of those who were among the first to eat there.

Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie congratulated staff at Richmond Centre, designers and construction crews, for their hard work.
