International American brasserie chain Sugar Factory opened in the Pentagon City Mall on Thursday with a little celebrity panache from Lord Scott Disick (yes, Kourtney Kardashian‘s ex was knighted, among other things). Sporting a grungy-casual look, the unshaven reality TV star opted for blemish-free white sneakers, jeans, and a patterned “supreme” jacket.
As one of the franchise’s many celebrity endorsers, Disick walked the shopping mall’s red carpet entrance with children Mason, 7, and Penelope, 5. Newly Instagram-official 19 year-old girlfriend, Sofia Richie, was not in attendance. The group settled in the back of the 200-seat restaurant for dinner.
The Arlington location offers all of Sugar Factory’s sensory-overload signatures, including candy-inspired martinis, rainbow sliders, monster burgers, fondue, “insane” milkshakes in flavors like bacon-cheeseburger, and 36-ounce “goblets” of booze designed by Pitbull. (We’re slightly terrified, but also impressed by the “energy bear” with watermelon vodka, regular vodka, gummy bears, juice, and a Red Bull floater). There’s also a 24-scoop, $99 King Kong sundae, because why not.
So what are the notorious bad-boy’s faves on the lengthy menu?
“The salad with pepperoni,” Disick says. “And water.”
