Pitch in for Science!
If you like feeling special because you goto a bunch of upscale, likely overpriced eateries arranged together… go for it. Whatever helps you sleep at night. But stop pretending it is something other than what it is… both in name and in actuality.
If you care about where you eat, you probably should go to an specific food seller, instead of The Hip Area that has a lot of food sellers that might be cool.
I actually find that a bit weird. When I eat out, there are two ways I function. a) What is close to me that I like (In which case the easiest thing, if there is a food court nearby, to wander over to it and look.), or b) I really want to eat at a specific type of place, or a specific company, so let me go to the closest one of those.
I've never been 'Well, I like the sort of food that is at that distant food court, or the quality of the food, so I trek over to there and then pick what I will eat.' That seems weird, the idea of a person going any significant distance to eat at 'a food court' without knowing where they are going to eat there. (Alone, that is. With groups, that makes sense, it allows different members to get different food but still eat together.)
Granted, I'm rarely anywhere near a food court anyway.
