- More open-concept in design than Kyoto's awe-inspiring train station, and almost as postmodern, Pacela's 10 floors of boutiques and restaurants form a sort of inverted wedding cake of layers and hollow middles. Hard to describe, ostentatious in intent, the over-all effect is pleasing. This is a good place to sit and have an espresso or gelato. The open-air atrium looking north over the city is especially pleasant. Pacela is home to fashion boutiques, the Virgin mega-store, restaurants--including the Tandoor Indian restaurant--and a radio station that hosts street level performances and draws a young crowd.
