Food courts are out. Food halls are in.
Not to be left behind in the Great South Florida Food Hall Boom, Aventura Mall announced several name-brand chains populating its upcoming Treats Food Hall as part of the mall’s expansion.
Shake Shack, My Ceviche and Figs by Todd English, the celebrity chef, are among the headliners of the restaurants opening on the third floor of the mall’s 315,000 square foot expansion this winter. The others include branches of local names, such as Zuuk Mediterranean Kitchen, by the owners of My Ceviche and a second location for South Beach’s Hank & Harry’s Delicatessen. Luke’s Lobster, which recently opened a spot in Brickell City Centre, will also have a spot in the Treats Food Hall.
Those restaurants will join other new restaurants throughout Aventura Mall, including Genuine Pizza — the rebranded pizzeria known as Harry’s Pizzeria from award-winning chef Michael Schwartz — Tap 42, Cvi.che 105, and Pubbelly Sushi.
