Five more things to love about the new Nordstrom
1. Deborah Lippmann Nail Bar
Indulge in a luxurious manicure or pedicure, including massages with the celebrity manicurist's Rich Girl hand and cuticle cream or Steppin' Out ayurvedic foot cream. Prices start at $15 for a polish change, up to $60 for a Star Treatment Pedicure. Second floor
2. Kids Wear
Parents who get a thrill from remaking little Ethan or Madison in their own image can dress them in brands like True Religion, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, plus Nordstrom's house labels, and a local line, Keiki Kruisers. Shown is a Little Marc Jacobs raincoat, $140. First floor
While some Nordstrom stores have done away with the pianists that had been fixtures since the 1980s, the Ala Moana store will have three pianists dividing shifts at the Steinway & Sons baby grand. First floor
4. Marketplace Café
Shopping can be dizzying after a few hours. If you need a break or boost of energy, the cafe offers salads, sandwiches, pizzas and pastas, with seating for 200. Dishes geared toward local tastes include an ahi nicoise salad and kalua pork pizza. First floor. Quick snacks and coffees can also be found at Ebar on the second and third floors.
5. Gelato Bar
This is a first for Nordstrom, no doubt taking our sunny weather into account. If you've made your way here from the main part of the mall and need to cool off, sample flavors of macadamia nut, raspberry, champagne and pistachio, from local gelato maker Maurice Grasso. In the photo, Tiffany Granger gives us the scoop. First floor
